She has the fire, she has the determination and she has the willpower, well, I am talking about Manikarnika – Rani Of Jhansi, and the teaser trailer of the same has just hit the net.
The teaser begins with Amitabh Bachchan’s voiceover as he explains how Manikarnika stood up against the British Rule and decided to fight for her motherland.
Kangana Ranaut, who is essaying the role of Rani Laxmi Bai, appears to be firey, fierce and in the middle of a battle against the East India Company. Kangana, in a warrior get-up, looks ferocious with two blood-stained swords in her hands as she appears to challenge an opponent.
In Manikarnika, Kangana as Rani Laxmi Bai is looking the part. There is a shot in the teaser wherein her horse almost trips and she is about to fall, well, this is for real as it actually happened while shooting the war sequence and the makers have retained the same.
Directed by Krish, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is a biopic on Rani Laxmi Bai, For some portions of the film, Kangana took over as the director because Krish moved on to filming his next project.
Kangana taking over as the film’s director for few scenes featured in headlines last month. Another controversy during the filming was Sonu Sood’s exit after he could assign dates to reshoot scenes because of his bearded look for another film.
After Sonu Sood’s exit from the film, there were a few reports suggesting that Kangana had completely taken over the film against her word that she was only doing patchwork. However, Kangana is not billed as the co-director in the film’s teaser.
“I am proud of this film, and of portraying a character who empowers and inspires. We have put in our heart, blood, and sweat into making this film. Manikarnika will make every Indian proud,” Kangana had earlier said in a statement about the film.
Anyways, coming back to the teaser, well, this one really impressed and I cannot wait to see the complete trailer and eventually the film. Kudos to team Manikarnika!!
Apart from Kangana Ranaut, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, also stars Ankita Lokhande, Jisshu Sengupta, Atul Kulkarni, Vaibhav Tatwawaadi, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and is set for a January 25, 2019 release.
