This actor will play Sanjay Gandhi in Kangana’s ‘Emergency’ – Bollywood News

Casting for Kangana Ranaut’s next directing project, “Emergency,” is in full swing. The actress, who will play Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the project, recently announced the casting of Malayalam actor Vishak Nair as Sanjay Gandhi. Based on a dark period in modern Indian history, “Emergency” will also feature Shreyas Talpade, Anupam Kher and Milind Soman, among others.

“Sanjay is one of the most crucial people in Mrs. Gandhi’s life. For that, I needed someone who played a man with his innocence intact but is also shrewd at the same time. He’s just as competent and equally passionate. The man needed a lot of nuance and can play a whole range of emotions. Sanjay is an extension of his mother,” Kangana recently said.

She added, “I searched for a face for over six months and decided to cast it as a face. I’m happy that after Avneet I’m casting a new face in a super-scale movie. Vishak is a terrific actor and has made a multitude of films in Malayalam. This is his first Hindi film and I’m sure it will do Sanjay’s character justice.”

Vishak himself is also super excited to star in this film. He said, “I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to be part of such an amazing film. Working with Kangana madame has been an absolute joy and a fantastic learning experience. It’s been something to work with such accomplished artists. I can flex my acting muscles and I haven’t had the opportunity as an actor to push myself in such a role.
