Kangana Ranaut Takes a Dip In The Ganga

Kangana Ranaut launched the first poster of her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi on the banks of the Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi. The actor performed a Ganga aarti even as fans went berserk all around.

The poster focuses on the battle-lit eyes of a turbaned Kangana, who plays Rani Lakshmibai in the film. Check it out here:

The Rangoon actor also revealed that she is gearing up to turn to direction and her first project would be a comedy. According to a report by Hindustan Times, she said she would now perhaps only work in her own films.

I want to move on to the next phase, which means that I will focus on my career as a filmmaker. And if I act, I will act in my film so… after Manikarnika, I’m directing my film. – Kangana Ranaut, Actor

In an interview to Times of India, she also said, “I am 30 now and I don’t see myself working with another director after this. I will focus on being a filmmaker.”

Kangana also spoke about her empathy with Rani Lakshmibai, on whose life Manikarnika is based.

She had a great sense of right and wrong, fair and unfair, just and unjust. That’s a quality I identify with her… You cannot live without your pride as a woman.

Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi has been penned by Prasoon Joshi and veteran writer V Vijendra Prasad, who has also written Baahubali, Baahubali 2 and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Directed by Krish, the film will release in April next year.
