The 32-years-old, Kangana Ranaut has been spotted taking Bharatnatyam classes regularly as she will soon shoot a grand song for the film with over 100 background dancers. The song will be choreographed by renown South Indian choreographer Gayathri Raghuram.
In accordance with the period the track is set in, the song will have a distinctly retro vibe. Going by her diligent rehearsals, it looks like Kangana is all set to deliver a song which will set new benchmarks.
The film is being helmed by Tamil director AL Vijay and has been written by 'Baahubali' and 'Manikarnika' writer K.V. Vijayendra Prasad and 'The Dirty Picture' and 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbai' writer Rajat Arora.
The 32-year-old actor will next be seen in 'Panga,' which has been directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari.

Kangana Ranaut for Cauvery Calling:
Kangana Ranaut has pledged her support towards Cauvery Calling, a campaign by Sadhguru's Isha Foundation to revitalise the river and increase forest cover. Kangana Ranaut said, "The rivers that are our lifeline are ceasing to exist. The drought in Chennai became a global issue. Leonardo Di Caprio was concerned about it even though he is in the US. Don't you think I will die of shame if I have no concern about what is happening in my country?"
Kangana has even decided to donate a substantial portion of her earnings towards the initiative. The actres said, "Each of us needs to donate only Rs 42 for a sapling every year and the volunteers of Isha Foundation will plant them. Our population stands at 1.3 billion. Imagine the green belt we can have if each of us donates for a sapling!
Kangana Ranaut added, "My sister Rangoli said that she will support this cause so that her son Prithvi grows up in a greener world. My appeal to everybody is to think of the next generation and come forward to help this cause. I will dedicate a large part of my earnings to the cause."
