Kangana Ranaut had no plan on directing her next ‘Aparajitha Ayodhya’ but was keen on only being the producer for the film. Although, as time went on she felt it would be right for her to produce and direct the film.
In a statement Ranaut said, “The plan wasn’t for me to direct the film. I started it as a project that I worked on from the concept level. I wanted to produce it and rope in another director for it. I was quite busy at that time to even think of direction. However, the script that KV Vijayendra Prasad shared was that of a film set on a large canvas, somewhat on the lines of the historical that I have directed before. My collaborating partners were also keen that I direct it. Eventually, even I felt that maybe it’s best if I helm this film. So, it all happened organically,” as according to Indian Express.
Ranaut also directed ‘Manikarnika’ (2019).
