In a surprising turn of events, Kangana Ranaut‘s much-awaited movie ‘Emergency’ has been postponed to the year 2024. The film, which was originally scheduled to hit theaters on November 24, 2023, has now been rescheduled due to a crowded film release calendar and an overpacked last quarter of 2024.
Kangana Ranaut took to social media to announce this important development and explain the reasons behind the decision. In her heartfelt message, she expressed her gratitude for the overwhelming response the film’s teaser and other promotional materials received.
In her statement, Kangana wrote, “Dear friends, I have an important announcement to make. ‘Emergency’ movie is the culmination of my entire life’s learnings and earnings as an artist. ‘Emergency’ is not just a film for me; it’s a test of my worth and character as an individual. The tremendous response that our teaser and other units got from everyone encouraged us all.”
She continued, “My heart is full of gratitude, and wherever I go, people ask me about ‘Emergency’s’ release date. We had previously announced the release date as November 24, 2023, but due to all the changes in my back-to-back film release calendar and an overpacked last quarter of 2024, we have decided to shift ‘Emergency’ to next year (2024).”
Kangana Ranaut assured her fans and the audience that a new release date for ‘Emergency’ will be announced soon and requested their patience, acknowledging the anticipation, curiosity, and excitement for the film.
‘Emergency,’ directed by Kangana herself, is a biographical drama revolving around the life of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, with Kangana playing the titular role.

Narayan, Shreyas Talpade as former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and Milind Soman as Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.
