New Delhi: Actress Kangana Ranaut’s forthcoming film ‘Manikarnika- The Queen of Jhansi’ poster is giving the patriotism feel.
A new poster was shared on Monday as a tribute to the freedom fighter on her 160th death anniversary. It is a sketch of Kangana as Laxmibai with a slogan, “Heroine of first war of Indian freedom, a symbol of patriotism and self-respect.”
Kangana’s official fan club shared it on Instagram with the caption that read, “Remembering one of the bravest women that ever lived, Rani Laxmibai.”
‘Manikarnika- The Queen of Jhansi’, is a film about Rani Laxmi Bai played by Kangana, that highlights the 1857 rebellion against British.
The release date of the movie has not been finalized yet. It was initially slated for April release but the makers have decided to shift it to August-September. “We have mounted the movie on a scale that’s hard to imagine. We don’t want to release too close to a film that would eat into our business. While we want to release the film between August and September, we have not zeroed in on a date yet,” said co-producer Kamal Jain. They are working out on a possible date to avoid any clash with Rajnikanth’s ‘2.0’.
Pictures of Kangana’s on shoot stills are also doing the rounds on social media and she looks nothing less than a goddess.
