No one could have handled MANIKARNIKA better than Kangana
The trailer of the most anticipated and much awaited historical biopic film MANIKARNIKA will be out on December 18th, 2018 in a grand way. The producer also confirms the film will release on January 25th nationwide and also simultaneously in Tamil and Telugu languages as well where it would be tapping in pan Indian markets with the film.
The queen of versatility and national award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut’s most ambitious project, MANIKARNIKA, will have a grand trailer launch on 18th December 2018. The actress took over the helms and reigns of the entire movie as a director after Krrish moved out of the film and the producer of the film, Kamal Jain, says no one could have handled this film better than Kangana.
Kamal Jain says, “Krrish was directing the film earlier but when he moved on to his next film Kangana took it up as a challenge. We couldn’t have found a better person because she has handled it with so much maturity.”
“She has been living with this film from Day 1 and she smoothly took over the direction of the portion that was left when Krrish left,” he added.
Kangana plays the fierce warrior Queen of Jhansi Rani Laxmi Bai and had several gripping and tough battle scenes that totally involved sword-fighting and bloodshed. The film also has an ensemble star cast with Atul Kulkarni as Tatya Tope, Suresh Oberoi as Bajirao, Danny Denzongpa as Nana Sahib, Jisshu Sengupta as Gangadhar Rao and also marks the Bollywood debut of TV actor Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkaribai who would be seen playing role of Queen’s closest aide and confident in the film.
The director also reveals Kangana is extremely serious and passionate about her work and also insisted a lot on having retakes on a few scenes.
Kamal Jain said, “There were many incidents when she was not happy with her takes and insisted on another take. It is not easy for anyone to act and direct simultaneously. She has gone out of her way for this film.” He further added, “She was so much in control of everything from the art, costumes to the storytelling. We are very happy with the work and we own every bit of the film together. We have completed the film and it
is now in the VFX stage.”
