Amitabh Bachchan might be joining her in the upcoming R Balki film, reports Mid-Day. If the project materialises, it will be Ranaut and Bachchan’s first cinematic collaboration, as the two have worked in a commercial together.
The film will be helmed by R Balki and will also feature Amitabh Bachchan. The inspirational drama which will kick start at the end of the year will feature Kangana essay the role of an amputee while Big B will play her mentor. The Simran actress will require a two-month preparation for the role before the film hits the floor.
A source close to the development tells mid-day, “Kangana had already been roped in for the Arunima Sinha (the first Indian amputee to scale Mount Everest) biopic. But the film showed no signs of kick-starting. So when Balki offered her this project, she was keen to come on board. The film revolves around a woman who is left handicapped after a freak accident, and eventually reclaims her life.”
“Kangana will require a two-month long prep to adapt to the body language of a differently-abled person. The actors are expected to sign the contracts next week and an official announcement will be made later this month,” added the source.
Kangana is currently in Jaipur shooting for her upcoming biopic on the queen of Jhansi, Rani Laxmibai. She has agreed to start shooting for the Arunima Sinha biopic as soon as she wraps up her shooting for Manikarnika
The tabloid also reported that an official announcement of the project will be made later this month. R Balki who is currently busy with Pad Man will begin working on the pre-production of the film right after the Akshay starrer hits the theatres.
Interestingly, Kangana and Amitabh Bachchan won the National Awards for Best Performances in 2016.
