Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming film Manikarnika is one of the most anticipated films. The film is making a lot of buzz for a lot of reasons. First the pictures from the sets, later the poster left everyone curious to know what will be offered to them. In the film, Kangana will be essaying the role of Jhansi Ki Rani, Rani Laxmibai. She looks like a complete warrior princess on the posters and stills that were shared earlier. On October 2, 2018, the makers of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi shared the first teaser of the film and everyone loved how powerful it is.
After director Krish walked out as a director as he wanted to start shooting for his another film, Kangana donned the director’s hat. It was a huge responsibility. After Sonu Sood, who was playing Sadashiv’s role in the film, walked out, the team had to reshoot the film. While talking to DNA about her film, the actress said, “It was important to establish the genre and the film’s scale as this biopic can be made as a human story since her tale is extraordinary or as a biopic in Hollywood style like Richard Attenborough’s Gandhi. We decided to make it as an action film and have communicated that through our teaser. It’s not the promo as we have not yet released any dialogues, scenes or storyline.”
Kangana Ranaut also revealed that it was her decision to release the trailer on October 2. The film also stars Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni and Zeeshan Ayub in vital roles. Manikarnika will hit the screens on January 25, 2019.
