Kangana Ranaut has confirmed that she will play a role based on NDTV award-winning journalist Barkha Dutt in a new film – Sanjay Dutt and Irrfan Khan are also likely to be involved. “Kangana is quite excited about playing a journalist for the first time,” said a source, “Kangana is very excited about her different look in the film. She will be chopping off her trademark curly tresses and sport a short hairstyle to look like Barkha Dutt.”
Although acclaimed for her more serious roles, Kangana is currently having a good time working on some less serious topics in No Problem and Tanu Weds Manu. “I am very happy with the kind of roles I am playing today,” she confirmed, “Movies like No Problem and Tanu Weds Manu are good to enact.”
Her next release will be the long-awaited Hrithik Roshan vehicle Kites and she is now beginning to get involved in the promotional run-up to the vehicle. Along with Hrithik, she will appear on Farah Khan’s stunning new chat show Tere Mere Beach Mein. Kangana appears thrilled to be finally involved in the promotion after having to take a back-seat to some extent whilst the movie was promoted at Cannes by Hrithik and Mexican co-star Barbara Mori.
