The 3 minutes 20 seconds trailer gives us a glimpse into the world of Rani Laxmibai. It literally takes us back to the era of the queen and showcases her sacrifices, valour and how she fought the British in the sepoy mutiny of 1857. The trailer is sure to leave you spellbound. Kangana who plays this titular role aces the character with her incredible performance.

At the trailer launch, Kangana said, “No actor wants to be out in the sun, they want to be in their vanity van. But I don’t know what is it about me that I love directing more than anything else. I don’t know why people consider direction a job. I consider acting as a job.”

She further said, “As far as the creative aspect is concerned, I want to give credit to the writers. The script never changed. I didn’t have to take anyone’s vision forward. I could use my own vision. I didn’t see any obstacle like that. But it is definitely difficult to step in someone else’s shoes. So, my future directing project would be easier than this.”

Manikarnika is primarily an Indian epic biographical film based on the life of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi. The film celebrates the courage of the invincible spirit by showcasing her bravery at the battlefield. The movie also stars Atul Kulkarni as Tatya Tope, Jisshu Sengupta as Gangadhar Rao, Suresh Oberoi as Bajirao II, Danny Denzongpa as Ghulam Ghaus Khan, Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkaribai and Yash Tonk as Rao Tula Ram among others.

Directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi the film is helmed by  K V Vijayendra Prasad, and the songs of the movie have been penned by Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi with music by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy.

Manikarnika will simultaneously release in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil.

The film is slated to hit the screens on January 25 next year. At the box-office, the film will clash with the Hrithik Roshan-starrer Super 30 and the Emraan Hashmi-starrer Cheat India.
