The trailer of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi has been released today. Along with Kangana Ranaut, who plays the warrior queen, the movie also stars Ankita Lokhande, Jisshu Sengupta, Atul Kulkarni and Danny Denzongpa in important roles.
After director Krish quit the project along with actor Sonu Sood, the movie has been helmed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi and Kangana Ranaut.
Manikarnika brings to life the story of the legendary Lakshmibai who transformed from a young queen to a warrior mother who took on the British on the battle field to save her kingdom. Kangana has chanelled royalty and fierceness in equal doses in her portraiture of the queen.
Prior to the film’s release, the makers released several posters to introduce the supporting characters – from Jhalkari Bai and Tatya Tope to Ghulam Ghaus Khan and Raja Gangadhar Rao.
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi releases on 25 January 2019.
