"I'm on the verge of announcing my next directorial venture. It's an action film, an epic drama. It has taken a lot of my time. Currently, we are putting everything in order, but we have locked the script. We will be doing a photoshoot, soon after, which we plan to release the poster, too," Kangana said in a statement.
The film is likely to be mounted on a large scale.
On the acting front, Kangana will next be seen in a sports-based film Panga, as well as in a biopic based on the life of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and yesteryear actress J. Jayalalithaa.
She feels it is a great time to be in the industry as "there are a lot of great stories to be told and actresses today are bringing a lot of business".
"I'm happy with the way Manikarnika worked for me - as an actor and also as a director. Now is the right time to start work on my second directorial project," Kangana added.
