Kangana Ranaut was given rousing reception and an audience by chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Madhya Pradesh where she has plans for her next film Dhaakad.
Kangana, who has finished shooting for Thalaivi, had Chouhan posing with the Dhaakad clapboard and showering praise on Kangana. The actor called him “most gentle, compassionate and encouraging influence.”
“The Beti Bachao movement has been underway in the state and I am happy that film is about the abuse faced by women and children,” he tweeted.
अभिनेत्री सुश्री @KanganaTeam और उनकी टीम ने आज निवास पर भेंटकर अपनी आगामी फिल्म धाकड़ की मध्यप्रदेश में शूटिंग के संबंध में चर्चा की।

"Padma Shri Kangana is a brilliant, talented and a nationalist artist. I am happy that the film has put priority on social issues. I wish them the best for the shooting and thank them for shooting in the state,’ he added.
Kangana Ranaut plays a Lara Croft-like character in the movie. The movie had first been announced and the first look shared in 2019, and had been gearing up for release on Diwali 2020. However, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the venture, which is now likely to release next year.
The Tanu Weds Manu star is also playing the role of an Air Force in the movie Tejas.
