Kangana Ranaut replaces Vidya Balan in Sujoy Ghosh film

The reigning ‘queen’ of Bollywood, Kangana is now giving cold feet to her peers in the industry. The super talented actress will now replace another winner, Vidya Balan in the upcoming film to be directed by Sujoy Ghosh.

Confirms the actress with IANS; “I would be doing the film with Sujoy. I am excited about it. It is a suspense thriller and beyond this I cannot reveal anything”. Tentatively titled ‘Durga Rani Singh’, the film will see Kangana playing the role of a 35 year old mother to a 14 year old girl with a paralytic condition, which, going by the description, seems to be a challenging one.


Earlier Vidya was to play this role but the actress had issues with the dates. Kangana is the sure shot replacement to such a story. Going by the popularity of Queen, many directors are now eying closely on Ranaut to carry off powerful women backed roles.


“I am very happy with the response to ‘Queen’. We had not expected this kind of appreciation…we are overwhelmed. We are thankful to the audience for this love for the film” she said, with a joyful tone.

Portraying strong roles comes as a niche to Kangana, right from the start. Her debut in Gangster saw her playing a full blown alcoholic and delivering some kick ass performance. Kangana then played another mind blowing role of a showstopper model in Madhur Bandarkar’s Fashion, walking away with a National Award for the same.

Looks like the Queen is on a roll!
