Fighting back the British rulers with the boldness, the story of Laxmibai (Queen of Jhansi) has been inspired to be made as a film which is directed by Radha Krishna, Jagarlamudi and ‘Dhaam Dhoom’ lady Kangana Ranaut. Being a popular Bollywood face, Kangana Ranaut in ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ has been much expected all over the world for the release on January 25th in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages.
When the team had launched the trailer in Tamil with a press meet at Chennai yesterday, Kangana Ranaut has stated that, “The life story of Rani Laxmibai has to be definitely narrated in films. This is the first patriotic movie for me. I was feeling bad for not acting in such movies for almost 12 years. It has been an immense pleasure in working with Indian cinema’s important and talented people like K. V. Vijayendra Prasad, Danny Denzongpa and Atul Kulkarni . I was so lean and was just 50 kgs when the shooting for this film has started. I am not able to handle the stunt sequences easily because of the weight. Even the stunt choreographer had mentioned me about that. Every day I had to work for more than 10 hours in the stunt portions especially. I have also taken more rehearsals for that. Once after finishing off my stunt portions, I have started directing the drama portions. It was a very unique experience for me in acting and directing this movie. It is an unforgettable experience of playing the role of the great Indian patriotic and brave female warrior. Since everybody knew the history of Rani Laxmibai in India, we trust that there will be a good welcoming!”
With the bankrolling of Kamal Jain’s ‘Zee Studios’, ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is stated to be made with almost Rs. 125 crores.
