Kangana Ranaut's much-anticipated movie Manikarnika- The Queen Of Jhansi has got a release date. The movie is set to hit the theatres on January 25 next year.

Confirming the news, movie critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote, "Mark the date #Manikarnika-The Queen Of Jhansi to release on 25 Jan 2019 [Republic Day]... Stars Kangna Ranaut ... Directed By Krish... Produced by Zee Studios and Kamal Jain. "

Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi was earlier supposed to open on April 27 this year. The movie has been written by Baahubali writer KV Vijayendra Prasad.

Interestingly, the box office will face the biggest clash of the year between Kangana and Hrithik Roshan on Republic Day as Hritik's Super 30 is slated to release on the same day. After all the hullabaloo the Hrithik- Kangana controversy has created, it will be interesting to see whose story will pull the public to the theatres.

The period drama also features Atul Kulkarni as Tatya Tope, Sonu Sood as Sadashiv and Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkarbai.

Talking about the movie the Queen of Bollywood ha earlier told media, "This movie is sure to instill a feeling of pride among the people. There is no love story angle in the film,” Manikarnika was marred in controversy for “tampering with historical facts” and “indecent portrayal” of Rani Laxmibai. Clearing his stance, producer of the film, Kamal Jain said, “As responsible filmmakers, we have taken utmost care while portraying Rani Laxmibai’s character and have consulted historians and scholars. Rani Laxmibai was a freedom fighter and one of the most respected leaders our country has seen. She is a symbol of valour and the film’s story depicts the same.”

As of now, Kangana is shooting for her next titled Mental Hai Kya along with Rajkummar Rao
