Yesterday, news hit the headlines that National award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut is planning to collaborate with filmmaker Anurag Basu to roll out a sequel to their 2007 film, Life In A… Metro. However, if latest reports are to be believed, the duo is indeed coming together after 12 years but not for Life In A…Metro 2. They are joining forces for a completely new project, titled Imali.
Described as an urban love story, the film will mount the shooting floor at the end of the year. The makers are planning to begin pre-production work by August. Currently, they are looking for a male lead.
“The prep for Imali is expected to begin by August but the film should roll only towards the year-end. The search for the male lead is on,” reveals a well-placed source to a popular Indian daily.
When Kangana was contacted for a confirmation, she told the publication, “It’s too early to talk about Imali as we are starting the film around the end of the year. All I can say is that Anurag is my godfather and everything I am today is because of him… I can’t wait to go back to the beginning.”
The actress, who is currently shooting for Ekta Kapoor’s Mental Hai Kya in London, will shortly be seen in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
