Kangana Ranaut, who is shooting for Manikarnia: The Queen Of Jhansi, will reportedly feature in the biopic of Arunima Sinha who became the world’s first woman amputee to scale the Mount Everest.
A source told a leading tabloid, “The biopic on Arunima will be shot in a straight 60-day schedule. Kangana is currently shooting for the Rani Laxmi Bai biopic in Jaipur. Once the schedule ends in December, she will sign on the dotted line. The director will be finalised in a month."
A source further told the tabloid that Kangana’s schedule has been worked out as her directorial debut has been delayed. The film was earlier to be helmed by Farhan Akhtar. Even Arunima Sinha had confirmed the news to the agencies, “Farhan had come to meet me at my place here on May 18 and proposed to make a film on my life highlighting my struggle. I have accepted the offer. Farhan said he wanted to make the film on her so that people could know about my struggle and get motivated just like his movie Bhaag Milkha Bhaag through which life of a great athlete was presented before the world." But now, Farhan has backed out and the film is backed by another production house.
As per the report, Kriti Sanon and Kangana Ranaut were the two choices for the film, but Arunima Sinha took the final call on the lead.
Coming back to the biopic based on the life of Arunima Sinha, we cannot wait for Kanagana to sign the dotted line.
