Facts about the film “Manikarnika The Queen Of Jhansi”:
Before coming to the main role of the movie that is done by Kangana Ranaut let us have a brief look towards the other leads of the film Manikarnika The Queen Of Jhansi.
Firstly we have another female lead in the film that is very well known the face of Hindi television industry Ankita Lokhande. Ankita did make her debut from in 2009 through a daily soap serial that was aired on Zee TV which was very famous and named as “Paviter Rishta”. Nowadays before this, the news was coming that Ankita will be making her debut in a Bollywood movie with Sanjay Dutt which later came out to be just a imagination of someone but this time Ankita Lokhande herself has come up and told about her debut in the Bollywood.
This break to her is also given by Kangana Ranaut and Ankita’s role in the film is also very important role of Jhalkari Bai who fought along with Rani Manikarnika always other that this she was also one of the very important advisers of the Rani. Once to save Manikarnika she introduced herself as Maharani in front of Britishers. During the times when UP minister was Mayavati, there was created a great statue of Jhalkari Bai which shows that how important part of that history Jhalkari Bai also plays.
Along with Kangana and Ankita, we have Sonu Sood also the part of this movie, again in the lead supporting role only. Sonu Sood will be playing the part of Sadashiv in the story.

Vijayendra Parsad, also directed by the director of Bhahubali, Krish, son of Vijayendra Parsad. Although after the great success of Bhahubali 2, the whole team is working only on this movie named as “Manikarnika The Queen of Jhansi”.
Kangana Ranaut after listening to the story of Maharani, she got so impressed that she decided to do all the stunts by herself which have led to several problems as well, in an fight scene she got hit by a sword near her eyes which lead to the delay of movie shoot for around one month.
In an interview, Kangana said “Thanks to Nihar Pandey, as I had a big cut near my eyes and I had almost lost my eyes. Thank you, Nihar Pandey, who missed his que, he keeps telling me, “do you really think that I did it purposely?” And I am always like “I really don’t know” and then he says “You mean”” and she laughed. But further added that “these things happen but they are nothing in front of what this woman has done, Maharani puts herself on fire in just the age of 8, she was so brave and she has definitely left a mark on my mind that is going to change me as a person for my life. Actually, this is what I badly wanted at that time.”
