But Ranaut on Wednesday said she will direct the biopic as she believes that no one can tackle the project better than her.

“Pleased to wear director’s hat again, after working on ‘Emergency’ for more than a year, I finally figured no one can direct it better than me, collaborating with fabulous writer Ritesh Shah, even if it means sacrificing on various acting assignments I am determined to do it,” she wrote in a post on Koo app.

Ranaut had previously assumed the director’s chair for her 2019 movie “Manikarnika”.

The film’s final cut had given the director credit to both Ranaut as well as Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi.

Besides “Emergency”, Ranaut has a string of films in her kitty including “Thalaivi” “Dhaakad”, “Tejas” and the second installment of “Manikarnika” franchise, titled “Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda”.
