Directed and produced by Kangana herself, Emergency sheds light on a crucial chapter in India's history, and the actress expressed her gratitude to the talented cast involved in the project.

The movie is based on The Emergency in India, a 21-month period from 1975 to 1977 when then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi declared a state of emergency across the nation.

Talking about the film, Kangana, who will portray Indira Gandhi in the film, shares, "Emergency is one of the most significant and darkest chapters in our history that young India needs to know. It is a crucial story and I want to thank my super-talented actors like Late Satish ji, Anupam ji, Shreyas, Mahima, and Milind for embarking on this creative journey together. I am excited to bring this extraordinary episode from India’s history to the big screen. Jaihind!"

Last year, the actor also posted her first look from the movie. BAFTA and Oscar-winning special effects make-up artist David Malinowski is behind Kangana’s accurate Indira Gandhi look. Malinowski has worked in films such as Bohemian Rhapsody, Now You See Me 2, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Darkest Hour.


Kangana took to Twitter to post the teaser of the film, and wrote " A protector or dictator? Witness the darkest phase of our history when the leader of our nation declared war on its people."

Release date


The movie was earlier slated to release on October 20, but the latest announcement reveals it to release on November, 24. The movie will face a clash with Pulkit Samrat and Richa Chadha starrer Fukrey 3.
