According to latest media reports, leading Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is planning to rope in a South Indian director to direct her next film, which will start rolling right after she completes her period movie Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.

Reportedly, the Tanu Weds Manu actress is considering noted filmmaker Prakash Rao Kovelamudi for her next production. Kovelamudi is the son of the distinguished Telugu filmmaker, K Raghavendra Rao and has called the shots for successful movies such as Bommalata, Anaganaga O Dheerudu and Size Zero.

The film which Kangana is planning with Prakash Rao is in the very initial stage and the National award-winning actress will start work on it in full force once her film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi comes to an end.

Directed by Krish, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is being readied for April 27, 2018, release. The team is about to leave for Rajasthan to film the next schedule of the movie. Besides Kangana Ranaut, the historical film also features Sonu Sood, Ankita Lokhande and Atul Kulkarni in prominent roles.
