Kangana Ranaut, renowned for her fearless and bold choices in both her film roles and her public statements, is reportedly undeterred by the box office underperformance of her Hindi film, “Tejas.” The actor, known for her resilience and unflinching attitude, has swiftly moved on and is set to embark on a new project down south.
Sources close to the development reveal that Kangana has signed a significant film titled “Bhairavi,” scheduled to commence production next year. Despite the disappointment of “Tejas,” Kangana remains focused on her future endeavours. The new project, “Bhairavi,” is expected to be a big-budget production with an estimated budget ranging from ₹80 to ₹100 crore.
Although no studio has been officially attached to the project at this stage, there is enthusiasm in the southern film industry to support a film led by Kangana, despite “Tejas” not meeting box office expectations. The reason for this is Kangana’s previous film, “Chandramukhi 2,” which enjoyed success in the southern market, and this achievement has bolstered confidence in Kangana’s star power.
“Bhairavi” is said to be a revenge story in which the protagonist’s mother is killed by her foster father, and she uncovers the truth later in life. This pan-India project is expected to feature other actors, but Kangana will lead the cast. An official announcement for the film is anticipated soon, as the project gains momentum.
In addition, there are ongoing discussions for Kangana to collaborate with “Chandramukhi 2” director P. Vasu on this venture. The film’s production is projected to commence early next year, signalling Kangana’s commitment to her work and her readiness to take on new and diverse projects.
While Kangana Ranaut is known for her Hindi film projects, her focus on south Indian cinema signifies her willingness to explore new horizons and capitalise on her growing popularity in the southern film industry. With her ability to adapt to different regional markets, Kangana’s resilience and versatility continue to be key factors in her journey as an actor.
