Yesterday, we confirmed that Alia Bhatt will be next seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s light-hearted comedy.

According to another leading daily, Ashwiny has now signed Kangana Ranaut to star in another movie.

While Ashwiny will begin shooting for the Alia starrer movie post-June 2019, she will then wrap up her movie with Kangana in the year leading up to Alia’s.

Kangana, who made her Cannes debut this year,  is currently immersed in the shoot of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The movie  will see the actor essaying the role of Rani Laxmibai

The film is being helmed by Telugu director Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi (Krish) and also stars Ankita Lokhande, Sonu Sood, Atul Kulkarni and Jisshu Sengupta in vital roles.

Initially, the movie was scheduled to release on April 27, 2018, but was later pushed and now speculations are rife of an August release, though no official announcement has been made by the makers yet. 

During an event recently, Kangana spoke in detail about her outfits in the movie. Kangana said, “In one part of Manikarnika when my character is married and is in a happy space, the outfits make me look so beautiful.

Every day, when I would dress up and go to the set, I would get so many compliments. But then, the film moves into a war zone and my look is that of a warrior queen.”

“There are so many shades to my character in the film,” Kangana added.

Kangana will also be seen starring opposite Rajkummar Rao in Prakash Kovelamudi ‘s Mental Hai Kya which is a psychological thriller.
