Kangana Ranaut's upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is creating a lot of buzz since its first announcement. It was rumored that Kangana is absurdly interfering in the direction of Manikarnika. This film is based on the momentous life of Rani Lakshmi Bai. This film is written by Bahubali fame KV Vijayendra Prasad. Along with Kangana Ranaut as Rani Laxmi Bai, the film also stars Jisshu as Gangadhar Rao, Atul Kulkarni as Tatya Tope, Suresh Oberoi as Peshwa Bajirao II, Vaibhav Tatwawaadi as Puran Singh and Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkaribai.
Kangana will be seen as a brave queen. It's an inspiring story of vicious clashes against the British with bravery and determination of Rani Lakshmi Bai. The first ever look of Kangana Ranaut has already taken the heart of the viewers.
When Kangana was asked about her character in the movie, she said, "When you talk about Lakshmibai, she was the general of an army. She was an extraordinary woman. How many clashes she faced in the prime of her youth! So it would be a shame to try to get into character superficially through clothes, make-up, hairstyles 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 brave lady of all times without having a battle scar on your face."
The aura, royalty braveness and fierceness of Rani Lakshmi Bai is constructed in the most authentic way possible. Everyone is excited to see Kangana in an empowering an inspiring role. The teaser of the film will be releasing on 2 October, Gandhi Jayanti. The viewers are really excited and geared up to see Kangana as playing a role of fierce queen for the first time.
