Actress Mahima Chaudhary, who made a place in the hearts of the public with ‘Dag: The Fire’ (1999), ‘Kurukshetra’ (2000) and ‘Dhadkan’ (2000), is soon going to be seen in a big role. After ‘Manikarnika’, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who is directing her next film ‘Emergency’, has signed Mahima Chaudhary.
Kangana has shared the first look of Mahima from ‘Emergency’ on Instagram. He told that the character that Mahima is going to play in the film is named Pupul Jayakar. Sharing the first look of Mahima, Kangana wrote, ‘Introducing Mahima Chaudhary in the character who saw everything, and then wrote it for the world to see the Iron Lady (Indira Gandhi) up close. Pupul Jayakar, friend, writer and Rajdar.
Who was Pupul Jayakar?
In her statement on Mahima’s casting in the film, Kangana said, “Pupul Jayakar was a writer who was a close friend of Mrs Gandhi and she also wrote her biography. Mrs Gandhi used to share all her secrets with him. If there is one thread that runs throughout the film and connects the audience to the inner world of Mrs Gandhi, it is Pupul Jayakar’s character.
Pupul is considered very close to the Nehru-Gandhi family. In the Indira Gandhi biopic, Pupul also revealed that Mrs Gandhi had foreseen her death during Operation Blue Star.
Mahima is proud to work with Kangana
Mahima praised Kangana Ranaut fiercely in her statement. Talking about her ‘Emergency’ costar, she said, “Working with Kangana is an experience because she plays so many roles, so easily.

In July, Kangana announced the shoot of ‘Emergency’ with a first look video. Earlier, Kangana was seen in the action thriller ‘Dhaakad’, which was a flop at the box office.
