Today marks the 190th birth anniversary of the fearless freedom fighter Rani Laxmi Bai. Actress Kangana Ranaut will be seen playing her on the celluloid soon in the upcoming film Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi. On this day, the actress talks about how the legendary freedom fighter inspired her. She says, “When Akhand Bharat 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.”
Speaking on Rani Lakshmi Bai’s 190th birth anniversary, Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios said, “Today, we remember India’s bravest and fiercest warrior, Rani Lakshmi Bai and her extraordinary life with sincerest gratitude. It’s an honour to be able to salute her through our upcoming film, Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi”.

Right from Kangana Ranaut to Shankar Ehsaan Loy who are giving the music of the film, to Prasoon Joshi – it’s a dream team that has come together. Not just that, Hollywood action choreographer Nick Powell has designed all the stunts in the film.
