Take a look.
Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is based on the story of Rani Laxmi Bai's battle with the East India Company, which made her one of the first freedom fighters of India. Manikarnika stars TV actress Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkarbai, Atul Kulkarni as Tatya Tope and Sonu Sood as Sadashiv.
Of playing Rani Laxmi Bai, Kangana said in a statement, "It's an iconic role. I trained a lot in sword fights and horse riding. In fact after riding the horse for two days straight I got a fever. I can only imagine the strength and nerves of steel that Laxmi Bai had... I am nowhere close to her greatness. I have only tried my best to portray her tales of bravery," news agency IANS reports.
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, directed by Krish, is slated to release on January 25, 2019, (Republic Day weekend).
