Kangna Ranaut pays tribute to freedom fighter Rani Laxmi Bai

Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut will next be seen in producer Kamal Jain’s historical film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, wherein she plays courageous freedom fighter Rani Laxmi Bai. The teaser of the period drama was unveiled a couple of days ago, which received a roaring response from the audience.

Today marks the 190th birth anniversary of the fearless freedom and Ranaut used to occasion to share an important message with all Indians. Giving a tribute to Rani Laxmi Bai, the National award-winning actress said, “When Akhand Bharat (India) was agreed upon, she really believed in new age India and fought for it. I think the best way to give her tribute is to value what we have today and to make Bharat a glorious country and world power. She was a true patriot who wanted her country to be a glorious one. I think to pursue her dream would be the best way to give her a tribute.”

Produced by ZEE Studios and Kamal Jain, Manikarnika-The Queen Of Jhansi also stars Ankita Lokhande, Jisshu Sengupta and Atul Kulkarni in key characters. It is helmed by Krish, who has directed many historical films down south. The big-ticket movie is scheduled to roll into cinemas on 25th January 2019.

Manikarnika-The Queen Of Jhansi will battle it out with Hrithik Roshan’s much-anticipated film Super 30 and Emraan Hashmi’s Cheat India on Republic Day weekend next year.
