Kangana Ranaut’s much-anticipated movie, Manikarnika’s producers on Saturday officially released the teaser date of the film as 2 October, Gandhi Jayanti day on Twitter.
The makers of the film, Zee Studio, taking to Twitter informed that the teaser of the movie will be released on Gandhi Jayanti Day.
They also shared another still of Kangana Ranaut donning the regal avatar and they revealed that the teaser will be out on October 2nd, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. The new still shows Kangana Ranaut dressed up as Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi, standing against the backdrop of Lord Ganpati. The film is produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain & Nishant Pitti.
Explaining the relevance on releasing the teaser of the movie on Gandhi Jayanti Day, Shariq Patel, CEO Zee Studios says, "Manikarnika salutes the extraordinary journey of India's fiercest warrior queen. Rani Lakshmibai who sacrificed her life, fighting for freedom and we are proud to bring this epic journey of India's fiercest warrior queen. Rani Lakshmibai sacrificed her life, fighting for freedom and we are proud to bring this epic journey to screen and inspire future generations. We are excited to launch the teaser on Gandhi Jayanti"
The film tells the story of the Rani Lakshmibai, the queen of Jhansi and her war against the British East India Company, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857. Kangana Ranaut as an actor works hard to make an authentic performance as the Queen of Jhansi. As the name is suggestive enough, the Queen actress will be essaying the role of valiant Indian queen Manikarnika who fought the British rule in her empire heroically. Manikarnika, The Queen of Jhansi, is a period drama, directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi and celebrates the strength, passion, courage and valour of Rani Lakshmibai.
Film critic Taran Adarsh also shared the news of Manikarnika’s release. While the entire cast was working day and night on the film, the biopic landed in some controversies after Sonu Sood walked out of the project. Also, the release date of the film has been deferred a number of times due to delay in post-production process or in order to avoid clashes.
Now, finally Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is releasing on January 25, 2019 clashing with Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30. Earlier, the poster of the movie also made ripples on social media for positive reviews.
