Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut revealed on Saturday that she mortgaged all her properties for her upcoming movie ‘Emergency’ through an Instagram post.
While announcing the ‘wrap’ of her solo directorial venture, in which she is portraying the role of the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, she wrote on the social media, “As I wrap Emergency as an actor today.... a tremendously glorious phase of my life comes to its full completion... It may seem I sailed through it comfortably but the truth is far from it...From mortgaging all my properties, and every single thing that I owned to being diagnosed with dengue during the first schedule and having to film it in spite of alarmingly low blood cell counts, my character as an individual has been severely tested ....I have been very open about my feelings on SM but I didn't share all this, honestly because i didn't want people who cared to worry unnecessarily and those who desperately want to see me fall and were doing everything to make me suffer, I didn't want to give them the pleasure of my pain ....”
She also added an inspirational note on her long post for those who break down easily in the face of adversity, “At the same time I want to share with you all that if you believe just working hard for your dreams or for what you want is enough, think again because that's not true ...You must work hard that's given even if you are worthy you will be tested beyond your limits and you mustn't break ...Hold on to yourself till you can ... you are fortunate if life spares you but you are blessed if it doesn't...... if you break and shatter in pieces ... celebrate...Because it's time for you to reborn ...It's a rebirth for me and I feel alive like never before...”
She further thanked her team for their support in making the movie possible along with her.
The movie ‘Emergency’ will portray the period during 1975-77 Indian Emergency when newspapers were censored and several journalists were arrested.
