Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut leaves no stone unturned to perfect her role and get into the skin of her character. After playing an actress in ‘Rangoon’, she is now all set to take on the character of Rani Lakshmibai.
In her next film ‘Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi’, Kangana will be seen essaying the role of the warrior queen of Jhansi. The first sketch of her look from the period drama has surfaced online and we have to admit, she is looking beautiful.
Apart from nailing the look, Kangana is rigorously also learning sword fighting and horse riding for the film.
According to bollywoodlife.com, “Kangana Ranaut is prepping for Manikarnika in full swing. She is currently practicing horse riding at the Mahalaxmi race course (Mumbai) with one of finest riders – Suresh Taporia. The movie will go on floors very soon,”
For the uninitiated, Manikarnika is a film on Jhansi Ki Rani and will be helmed by Krish, who directed Akshay Kumar’s Gabbar Is Back. Ketan Mehta was supposed to direct the movie but as per reports, he was kicked out by Kangana, who is producing the film due to mutual differences.
The story has been penned by SS Rajamouli’s father, KV Vijayendra Prasad, who is also the writer of Baahubali. The film will revolve around the life of an ordinary girl, who finds herself in quite a few difficult situations. How she decides to fight her battle and discovers the warrior within herself forms the rest of the story.
