Swords And Sceptres features Devika Bhise (The Man Who Knew Infinity actress) as Rani Laxmibai. It also stars Rupert Everett (stars of My Best Friend's Wedding and An Ideal Husband) and The King's Speech actor Derek Jacobi. Of similar subjects, Devika told mid-day: "I'm aware that another biopic is being made on the Queen of Jhansi, which has a big Bollywood star featuring in it. But there's enough room for more movies on her." Swords And Sceptres is directed by Swati Bhise.
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is directed by Krish and it will be Kangana's first film as producer. Kangana's last few films - Simran and Rangoon - failed to perform at the box office. Manikarnika also stars television actress Ankita Lokhande.
