Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. As the name is suggestive enough, the Queen actress will be essaying the role of valiant Indian queen Manikarnika who fought the British rule in her empire heroically.
On Saturday, the makers have dropped the date to release Manikarnika’s teaser. Sharing another picture of Kangana Ranaut donning the regal avatar, they revealed that the teaser will be out on October 2nd, on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.

Ever since the film went on floors, Manikarnika has been in the news for no good reasons. One of the most controversial films of the year, Manikarnika had to face a lot of backlash from its cast and crew. The budget of Manikarnika has reportedly escalated from Rs 60 crore to Rs 125 crore, Kangana taking over the reins from director Krish and co-star Sonu Sood abandoning the project due to differences with her.
The cast also includes Ankita Lokhande, Suresh Oberoi, and Bengali actor Jisshu Sengupta among others.
