On the acting front, Kangana Ranaut is currently filming for Dhaakad alongside Arjun Rampal. Besides this, she will be seen in Ronnie Screwvala’s Tejas and Emergency. The latter will have Ranaut playing the role of Indira Gandhi. Kangana is also awaiting the release of the Jayalalithaa biopic Thalaivi, which was pushed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As for Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the actor will be next seen in Sangeen, Heropanti 2 and Jogira Sara Ra Ra.
