Much to the surprise to all Kangana Ranaut fans, the plot of her upcoming directorial debut has reportedly been revealed. A few months back, the actress revealed that she will soon begin working on her home production, Teju, where she’ll play an elderly woman.
She went on to reveal that the film will portray issues mortality and the essence of existence, without being too preachy and boring. According to a report on Pinkvilla, Kangana has already written down the story and screenplay of Teju and had planned to begin filming in Himachal Pradesh, starting December. However, due to the shoot of her upcoming film, Manikarnika, she has not been able to concentrate on her home production, and will commence after she wraps up the film.
Refuting rumours that Teju was put on hold because of the mixed responses that Simran received, co-producer Shailesh R Singh said, "Kangana's project was never meant to start this year. She is working on Manikarnika, which will wrap up by January 2018. She will then prepare for Teju over the six to eight months that follow."
He went on to say, "This is one of the most challenging and expensive films that can be made in Bollywood. So, it will take time. International technicians are also being roped in.” Revealing details on the storyline, a source told Pinkvilla, "The ageing protagonist is not ready to leave the world. She uses her superpowers to re-live her life. The film has a message of women empowerment and caters to children as well. It's an expensive project, with a budget hitting INR 50 crore, because, apart from VFX, it will also involve the use of prosthetics for Kangana's look." The film is expected to roll in June 2018.
Wow! This seems like one exciting project. We can’t wait to watch Kangana back on the big screen with a bang!
