Kangana to play Barkha Dutt

After playing mostly traumatized lady, sultry actress Kangana Ranaut will now play a very powerful role of a tough journalist. Reportedly, she will play the role of Barkha Dutt. To portray the character, Barkha will undergo a complete image makeover. She will chop her hair as well as go for a wardrobe change.

In this untitled film, Kangana will be sharing screen space with Sanjay Dutt and Irrfan Khan. While Sanju baba will play a police agent, Irrfan’s role has been kept under wrap. The Raaz actress is quite excited to play this challenging role.

Confirming the news, a source said, "Kangana is quite excited about playing a journalist for the first time. Sanjay Dutt and Irrfan Khan are the two key characters from different walks of life who come together to raise Rs 32,000 crore in two hours. Kangana, who has a great fashion sense and is known to always experiment with her roles, is very excited about her different look in the film. She will cut off her trademark tresses and sport a short hairstyle to look like Barkha Dutt.”

Kangana's next release is Rakesh Roshan's 'Kites' opposite Hrithik Roshan.
