While on one side the brazen Kangana Ranaut is in headlines for her bold & striking statements, on the other hand the lanky actress is also preparing for her next film MANIKARNIKA – THE QUEEN OF JHANSI. Though her last film RANGOON with Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan didn’t work at BO, but that hasn’t deterred the actress from moving ahead.
While the film is yet to hit the floors, it seems her look test is underway. We got our hands on the ?first conceptualized sketch from the workshop session of the film. The sketch of Kangana as Rani of Jhansi is convincing and impressive. Kangana replicates the Queen of Jhansi with a turban on head and decked with accessories. Well we are floored with her sketch, we wonder how overwhelming her real look would be and even her acting, because she is known to give stellar performance.
We hear, Kangana is also taking horse riding and sword-fighting lessons to get into the skin of the character.
The shoot of the film begins by the first week of June.
The film is being directed by Krrish.
