One of the movies releasing in 2018, we all are excited about is Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi. The movie features Kangana Ranaut essaying the role of the braveheart Rani Lakshmi Bai, who fought against the British regime. Her story remains instrumental in making India the free country it is today. Is there any other option but be excited about this project? Well, for those who are looking forward to it, the good news is that the first teaser of the movie is just around the corner. In less than a month, On August 15, the first teaser of the movie will be released online.
A report by Zee News suggests that on Tuesday, Kangana met the film’s producer Kamal Jain, and she was treated with the rushes of her film. After watching a few glimpses from the movie, the excited actress asked the producers to make the announcement about the release date of the teaser. And voila! Producer Kamal Jain said to Zee News, “The grandeur of the movie will surprise people and the action sequences of the film are quite amazing.”
Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi is directed by Krish and backed by Zee Studios. The film also marks the big screen debut of popular television actress Ankita Lokhande, who plays Jhalkari Bai. The movie also has Jisshu Sengupta, Atul Kulkarni, Sonu Sood and Suresh Oberoi playing key roles. Celebrated fashion designer Neeta Lulla has worked on Kangana’s look in the film.
Talking about the queen, Kangana had earlier told a daily, “But when you talk about Laxmibai, she was the general of an army. She was an extraordinary woman. How many battles she fought in the prime of her youth! She was like a ‘killing machine’. So it would be a shame to try to get into the character superficially through clothes, make-up, hair styles and jewellery. And if you give blood to play such a woman, it’s worth it. To be honest, I’m only happy. You can’t hope to immortalise the greatest warrior of all times without having a battle scar on your face. So it’s justified.”
