The film Teju will be shot in Himachal Pradesh. Kangana Ranaut grew up in the hills and has strong memories about the cloud covered peaks and the narrow ghats that lead up to them. She promises to give the viewers a visual treat of the culture filled Himalayas. She feels that mainstream cinema has unexplored the beauty of the place that would make good cinematography
Kangana Ranaut spoke to Mumbai Mirror about her character Teju, she said,”Yes, I will play an 80-year-old woman in my first directorial, Teju,”
Yes, this will also be the first film directed by Kangana Ranaut. She will be playing the character of an 80-year-old woman who is nearing death but is not ready to die. When Kangana was asked about the character she said, ”She is a warm, vibrant woman, full of life, who doesn’t feel old at all.” The film will speak of mortality and afterlife.

Kangana draws her inspiration for the character from her own great grandmother. Kangana was raised by her great grandparents who were in their 80s at that time. She spent quality time with them and remembers them greatly. She feels irked by the current treatment of the society towards grandparents these days.
