Zee Studios’ Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi is one of the most anticipated films of 2019 and the teaser has given audiences a glimpse into the scale of the film.
The film is based on the life of Rani Laxmi Bai, India’s biggest warrior queen, who fought for independence against the British army. The makers wanted the film to look as authentic and as real as possible. Hence, they did a recce for over two months and shortlisted 70 locations across six cities including Hyderabad, Mumbai, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Bikaner and Alsesar.
The team conducted extensive research that went into the making of this film. Not just that, over 30 sets were built for the making of the film. Since the film is set in 1857, it was crucial for the studio to choose apt locations, which not only showcase the larger than life scale but also resemble that era authentically.
Directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi, Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi is set to release in cinemas on 25th January 2019. The trailer of Manikarnika is all set to release on 18th December. It stars Kangana Ranaut in the titular role.
