Meanwhile, a picture of Kangana resembling Lakshmi Bai is going viral on social media and is said to be the first look of the film. Neither Krish nor any of the people associated with the project have spoken about it. The official confirmation is expected to be out soon.
Director Krish has recently tasted a hit with the film Gautamiputra Satakarni. The blockbuster success of the film has raised the range of the director. Now, Krish is planning to come out with another exciting period drama with National Award winning actress Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. The film will be based on Jhansi Lakshmi Bai life. Manikarnika is the tentative title of the film. The pre-production work of the film has been started already. There are multiple rumours available on the project now.
