The makers of Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi are leaving no stone unturned to create a good pre-release buzz about the film. The movie stars Kangana Ranaut in the lead role, but now the makers are introducing new characters from their film every day. On Thursday, we were introduced to Ankita Lokahnde’s character Jhalkaribai, a soldier in the women's army of Rani Lakshmibai. And now, on Friday, we are introduced to one more character of the film, Maharaja Gangadhar Rao, Rani Lakshmibai’s husband. The character in the film is played by Jisshu Sengupta.
Jisshu is spilling royalness as Maharaja Gangadhar Rao and we are quite impressed with his look. It is said that Maharaja Gangadhar Rao was the biggest pillar of strength for Rani Lakshmibai. It will be interesting to see the kind of chemistry Kangana and Jisshu will share on the big screen. This won’t be for the first time that we will get to see Jisshu in a Bollywood film. He has earlier starred in movies like Barfi, Mardaani and Piku, but none of the films gave him scope to showcase his acting prowess. Let’s hope that he has a good screen time in Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.
Directed by Krish and co-directed by Kangana, the film is slated to hit the screens on January 25, 2019. The trailer of Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi will be out on December 18, 2018.
