At Manikarnika’s Tamil trailer launch, Kangana Ranaut says she was able to relate to Laxmibai’s ‘rebellious attitude’

  Just weeks before the release of Kangana Ranaut’s ambitious new film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, the makers have unveiled the Tamil and Telugu trailers of the period drama. Speaking at the launch event in Chennai on Friday, Kangana said when she signed on for the film, she wondered how nobody had thought of making a film on Rani Laxmibai before. She said, “When I signed this film my first thought was ‘How come nobody has done a film on Jhansi ki Rani yet?’ So, I consider it a stroke of luck that I’m doing it.”

Elaborating further, she said that the makers have tried to stay as authentic as they could. “We have tried to keep the history as precise as possible. Like how Indians don’t support Indians.”
