All the action from Kangana's Manikarnika

June 20, 2018 10:39 IST

What do you think of Kangana's look?

Kangana Ranaut treated us to a sketch of the historical character she will play in her new film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.

Based on the life of Rani Laxmi Bai and her war against the British East India Company in 1857, Manikarnika is written by Baahubali writer K V Vijayendra Prasad and directed by Telugu director Krish.

As Kangana wraps up the shoot, we take you behind the scenes.
