After finishing his ongoing project, Anurag Basu will start working on his next film called Imali. Initially, National Film award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut was set to play the female lead in the film. However, she quit the project saying she needed to focus on her next directorial venture after Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi (2019).

Now speculations are rife that Deepika Padukone will replace Kangana Ranaut in the movie. Basu also confirms that she has approached the actress for the part. However, she is yet to take the final call. “I cannot confirm till she confirms anything. I did meet her. She has to confirm it to me and then we can confirm it to others.”
