After co-directing Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut will now produce a film based on Ram-Mandir case titled ‘Aparajitha Ayodhya’.
The film will roll early next year and is scripted by KV Vijayendra Prasad, the creator of the Bahubali series.
Kangana Ranaut to produce film on Ram Mandir-Babri Masjid case
Speaking about the reason behind choosing this subject, Kangana told Mumbai Mirror that, “The Ram temple has been a burning topic for hundreds of years. As a child born in the ’80s, I have grown up hearing the name Ayodhya in a negative light because the piece of land on which was born a king, who was the epitome of sacrifices, became the subject of a property dispute. The case has changed the face of Indian politics and the verdict has ended the centuries-old dispute while embodying the secular spirit of India. What makes Aparajitha Ayodhya different is that it is the journey of the protagonist from a non-believer to a believer. And since, in a way, it reflects my personal journey, I decided it would be the apt subject for my first production.”
Kangana further stated that the film Aparajitha Ayodhya will pay tribute to the unwavering faith of devotees and how the country continued to remain a nation of believers. She said, “I’ve seen bhakts refusing to step out of the rain, arguing how can they be warm and dry when Ram Lalla is wet and cold.”
“Despite all efforts to wipe out our spirit of unity and secularism, we remain a nation of believers, we remain undefeated. Hence the prefix ‘Aparajitha’, which means the unvanquished,” she concluded.
On the work front, Kangana will next be seen in Ashwini Iyer Tiwary’s ‘Panga’ which is slated to release next year.
