Kangana Ranaut in a still from Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi

Actor Kangana Ranaut says she is quite inspired by Rani Laxmi Bai after playing the warrior queen in the upcoming period drama Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.

Sharing her thoughts on the 190th birth anniversary of Laxmi Bai, Kangana said, “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.”

Shariq Patel, CEO of Zee Studios, said, “Today, we remember Indias bravest and fiercest warrior Rani Lakshmi Bai and her extraordinary life with the sincerest gratitude. Its an honour to be able to salute her through our upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.”


Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansis plot primarily revolves around Rani Laxmi Bai who attempted to safeguard her kingdom by picking up arms against the invaders. Apart from Kangana, the movie also features Jisshu Sengupta and Atul Kulkarni in significant roles.
