Currently, Kangana and "Katti Batti" actor Imran Khan are busy promoting their film. She is also shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's "Rangoon." The flick brings Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan on silver screen together.

The "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" actress has also been signed up for Ketan Mehta's "Rani Laxmibai" and Hansal Mehta's "Simran".
