KANGANA ON CHOOSING VISHAK NAIR TO PLAY SANJAY GANDHI
“Sanjay is one of the most crucial people in Mrs. Gandhi’s life. For that, I needed someone who played a man with his innocence intact but is also shrewd at the same time. He’s just as skilled and equally passionate. The man needed a lot of nuance and can play a whole range of emotions. Sanjay is an extension of his mother,” Kangana said in a statement.
“I searched for a face for over six months and decided to cast him as a face. I’m happy that after Avneet I’m casting a new face in a super-scale movie. Vishak is a great actor and has done a bunch of Malayalam films. This is his first Hindi film and I’m sure it will do Sanjay’s character justice,” she added.

On the other hand, Anupam Kher will be seen trying out the role of revolutionary leader JP Narayan. As for Shreyas, he will play former Indian Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
