The teaser of Manikarnika, the film based on Rani of Jhansi, is here. After many stills from the sets of the film, the audience gets to watch the teaser of the film and it looks quite grand.
The teaser begins with Amitabh Bachchan’s voice over as he explains that India was a flourishing and welcoming nation when the Brtish decided to invade and it was then that Manikarnika decided to fight for her motherland. This introduction is followed by grand shots of Manikarnika entering her palace. We also see her riding on a horse. There is also a shot of her sitting atop her throne with a baby in her lap.

Talking about the teaser, producer Kamal Jain said, “We are delighted to present the teaser of the movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi. Rani Lakshmibai was not only a great warrior and an important part of our Independent struggle but also a fascinating person and through this biopic we will be showing her journey. It is truly one of its kind movie and with this teaser people will be able to get a small glimpse of that”.
After Sonu Sood’s exit from the film, there were a few reports suggesting that Kangana had completely taken over the film against her word that she was only doing patchwork. However, Kangana is not billed as the co-director in the film’s teaser.
“I am proud of this film, and of portraying a character who empowers and inspires. We have put in our heart, blood and sweat into making this film. Manikarnika will make every Indian proud,” Kangana had earlier said in a statement about the film.
Directed by Krish, the film stars Kangana Ranaut, Jishu Sengupta, Suresh Oberoi, Danny Denzongappa, Atul Kulkarni, Ankita Lokhande and Zeeshan Ayub among others. The film is written by the writers of Baahubali and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
