Kangana Ranaut‘s debut directorial venture for children was set to go on floors in Himachal Pradesh in December but now we hear that the children’s film is set to deter it shooting for few months. After being embroiled in controversies for her spat with Bang Bang actor Hrithik Roshan, the actress has to face problems after the children’s film has been postponed. However, reportedly, now the shooting for this film will commence only after the actress wraps up her current Rani Laxmibai biopic – Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi.

Meanwhile, Simran‘s co-producer Shailesh R Singh suggests otherwise. In a statement to Mid-Day, Shailesh said, “Kangana’s project was never meant to start this year. She is working on Manikarnika, which will wrap up by January 2018. She will then prepare for Teju over the six to eight months that follow. This is one of the most challenging and expensive films that can be made in Bollywood. So, it will take time. International technicians are also being roped in.” ALSO READ: (Victoria & Abdul Movie Review: Critics Unimpressed With Stephen Frears’ Latest Offering)

Speaking of the film’s storyline and giving little more insight into Kangana’s character in the film, a source told Mid-Day, “The ageing protagonist is not ready to leave the world. She uses her superpowers to re-live her life. The film has a message of women empowerment and caters to children as well. It’s an expensive project, with a budget hitting Rs 50 crore, because, apart from VFX, it will also involve the use of prosthetics for Kangana’s look.” However, the film is expected to roll in June 2018.
