Emergency is written and directed by Kangana Ranaut. The screenplay and dialogues are penned by Ritesh Shah. In the film, Kangana will be seen portraying Indira Gandhi.
Sharing a picture of herself engrossed in thoughts, Kangana Ranaut wrote, “Today is a break day, I don’t call it a break I call it a pause day…On such a blank beat you wonder where did you loose yourself…You dissolve in the character and find that nothing of you is left in you.
“You see your own pictures like a stranger and wonder will you ever be the same…the truth is you can never go back to being the same person, once a character has happened to you it remains like a scar on the soul, like the darkness of the night, like the glow of the moon, like a realisation you can’t own, like a million shinning suns, like the dizzying hights of the mountains and suffocating depths of the sea…a character will remain regardless of you … #emergency”
