Kangana’s ‘Manikarnika’ Poster Launch In Varanasi.

After impressing everyone with her performance in ‘Rangoon’, Actress Kangana Ranaut will now be seen on big screen portraying the role of Rani Laxmibai in her upcoming ‘Manikarnika’. On 4th May 2017, the actress unveiled a 20-feet-long poster of Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi at Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi. Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Prasoon Joshi, and Richa Sharma joined the actress for the much-anticipated launch. Kangana looked absolutely the reigning queen in the poster of the movie. Directed by Telugu director Krish, the film will hit the theaters on April 27, 2018. For the event, the actress wore a net floral sequined sari from the collection of ace designer Sabyasachi. "I'm so blessed to be here. With the blessings of Lord Shiva, we have launched it here. After coming on board for this project, I feel like I've achieved something very big in my life," the actress said during the event. Laxmibai, whose maiden name was Manikarnika, was born in Varanasi to a Maharashtrian Brahmin family in the year 1828 and that's why the makers chose the city to unveil the film's first official poster. The actress, after the launch, attended the evening aarti and took dips in the river at the Ganga ghat. She opted for a gold sari and teamed it up with tangerine brocade blouse during the aarti. She also said, “I feel that Rani of Jhansi is very relatable for women like us. Life without respect was equivalent to death for her. I think that is something I completely identified with." Veteran writer V Vijendra Prasad, the writer of ‘Baahubali’ and ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, has teamed up with Prasoon Joshi for the script of the film.
