Kangna Ranaut has confirmed that she’s teamed up with the writer of ‘Baahubali’ KV Vijayendra for a story on her own life which will be made into a film, BizAsiaLive.com can confirm.

The actress said that Vijayendra urged her to write a script on her own life story. She told Hindustan Times, “I was nervous and wary initially, but then, given his stature and the fact that I trust him implicitly, I gave Vijayendra sir the go-ahead on the project”.

She further added, “How can I show my journey without people, I can’t be walking alone. But we will not be taking any names. The idea is to protect me and my life with all its highs and lows. In the end, it is the story of an achiever, a girl from the mountains who came into Bollywood without any connections in the industry or even a godfather, and went on to carve a niche for herself against all odds”.

Ranaut also addresses that it will not be “propaganda”, “My own story is the subject of my next directorial. But it is not a propaganda film with characters who are starkly black and white, rather it is a sincere, heartfelt account of my journey so far with plenty of lighter moments”.

Ranaut was seen last in ‘Manikarnika’ which she directed a huge portion of herself.
