Bollywood’s noted fashion designer Neeta Lulla who is presently working with Kangana on her forthcoming movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi says that Kangana loves trying out different roles and fashion preferences.
“It is lovely working with her. She is someone who gets in the character. She is always trying out different things (referring to her films and roles). She is in that sense very experimental. In terms of fashion, she has a style statement of her own as whatever she wears she carries it off well. It is an absolute pleasure to be working with her”, said Neeta in an interview.
The film is directed by Krish and revolves around the life of the warrior Rani Laximibai who was the queen of Jhansi.
Neeta who admires the warrior queen says,”She (Rani Laxmibai) was a woman of substance. There are lot of women today who do multi-tasking, they are house wives who do something that makes a difference, they protect their surroundings in whichever way they can. There are many Manikarnika in today’s time. For a film to come up (on such a woman) is a beautiful thing”.
Since the film revolves around a real life character, Neeta says that they have to be really cautious as a team.
Adding further she says, “There is an extensive research that goes in for a film like this as there is a sensibility attached to it. You have to do your best.”
Known for her works in films like Devdas, Jodha Akbar, Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se and Mohenjo Daro, Neeta is all set to work for Manikarnika.
Ankita Lokhande and Atul Kulkarni will also feature in the film which is scheduled to release in April, 2018.
