The first look of Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Emergency’ is out, and people are stunned. Kangana makes her directorial debut with the movie. In an interview, the actress said her makeup artist David Malinowski told her that her jawline is similar to those of India’s first female Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi.

She said, “David and his team are astute professionals. An entire team flew down from London. We had a series of meetings to ascertain the final look and did a bunch of look tests. David took the calls on how to go about it. In fact, he pointed out that I physically resemble Mrs. Gandhi a lot, including the skin texture and jawline. I told him that in India, people believe I am the perfect person to play Mrs. Gandhi.”

Malinowski is a popular make-up artist from the West and has worked in popular Hollywood films such as ‘World War Z’ and ‘The Batman.’ He has also won several awards, including the 2018 BAFTA and Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling in the 2017 film ‘Darkest Hour’.

On the work front, Kangana was recently seen in ‘Dhaakad’. She will be seen as an Indian Air Force officer in the Sarvesh Mewara-directorial ‘Tejas’. Kangana will also debut as a producer with Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer ‘Tiku Weds Sheru’.
