Popular television actress Ankita Lokhande is all set to make her silver screen debut with MANIKARNIKA: THE QUEEN OF JHANSI.

The actress will be playing Jhalkaribai in the film who is a woman soldier in Rani Laxmibai’s army. Jhalkaribai rose to the position of a prominent advisor and at the peak of their battle with the British, disguised herself as the queen so she could mislead the enemy.


Talking about her role in the film Ankita was quoted in Mumbai Mirror saying as, “I’d never heard of her before, not many have, but Jhalkaribai was one of the greatest heroes of our proud history. I’m honoured that I’ll be telling her story to the world, fighting alongside Kangana’s Rani Laxmibai.”

She further added, “I can’t wait to start this beautiful film. I get goose-flesh at the thought of seeing myself on the big screen.”

The actress has started preparing for her role and is currently being trained by Hollywood action director Nick Powell.
