Kangana Ranaut, who has been highly expecting her historical film “Manikarnika,” the biography of Rani Lakshmi Bhai of Jhansi, shares about her Manikarnika experiences. Kangana says that she was not much confident while starting the film, as she was very skinny and didn’t look like a warrior. She couldn’t even practice the action sequence for more than half an hour. The action choreographer was doubtful if she could do it. Later, she started gaining weight and she could do better after 10-12 hours of practice, reveals Kangana. During the sword fights, the real swords took her to a different world, says Kangana. Kangana also speaks high about the director. It is to be noted that she directed the dramatic sequences and Krish took hold of the action sequences. Juggling between a director and an actor was not easy, says Kangana. As she is a director too, she couldn’t relax in between the shots, says Kangana. Kangana also says that playing a written character is easy, but it is a bit tough to represent a person, who lived.
Initially, she was uncomfortable with the role, as she has to portray a person, who was patriotic, cared and loved her land, spiritual and also had a golden heart. To play the role, one must be devoted to it and should have trust and faith. Only after a few days, she developed all these, says Kangana. We hope, this would be yet another prestigious film from India that would be widely spoken.
