Kangana Ranaut has announced her digital debut as a producer with the film Tiku Weds Sheru, which is going to be a love story and a satire. The actress also unveiled the logo of her production house Manikarnika Films on Saturday, her father’s birthday.

The logo depicts a tiger emerging from flames, with a temple in the background. The production house’s title is a nod to the title role Ranaut enacted in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi (2019), for which she won the National award earlier this year.

"With Tiku Weds Sheru, Manikarnika Films is venturing into digital space,” the actress said in a statement. “It's a love story and a satire with dark humour. In the digital space, we will do more edgy, new-age and niche content.

“We will also launch new talents and take risks with new concepts. We feel the digital audience is slightly more evolved than the regular cinema-going audience," she added.

Ranaut will next be seen as former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa in the multi-lingual biopic Thalaivi (2021). The actress has also been filming for the action film Dhaakad and drama Tejas in which she plays an Air Force pilot.
