Kangana Ranaut launched the trailer of the movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi along with the cast and crew at Wadala’s IMAX Theater recently.
The trailer of the historical film features Kangana Ranaut in the titular role and is based on the life and times of the queen of Jhansi, Laxmi Bai.
Manikarnika trailer begins with the forces of British East India company soldiers laying siege around Jhansi. As scores of company soldiers surround, a voice-over informs the viewers that unless a successor is found for the throne, the British would annexe Jhansi the way they have done to other princely states across India. Fearless and feisty, we meet Kangana’s Manikarnika. “Kanyay kaise kalaiyaan ghumate hai, main dikhati hun,” she tells a group of sword fighters.
Here is the link of the trailer:
The movie also stars Atul Kulkarni as Tatya Tope, Jisshu Sengupta as Gangadhar Rao, Suresh Oberoi as Bajirao II, Danny Denzongpa as Ghulam Ghaus Khan, Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkaribai and Yash Tonk as Rao Tula Ram among others.
.Manikarnika will simultaneously release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil. Directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi. It is expected that the film will hit the screens on January 25, 2019.
