Kangana Ranaut: I relate to Rani’s character


Kangana Ranaut is promoting her upcoming film, ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’, across the country with great vigor. Excited to play the iconic character from India’s history, Kangana says, “We have tried to keep the history as precise as possible. I consider it a stroke of luck that I am doing a film on Jhansi Ki Rani. Was I able to relate to her character? Naturally. As a woman, she had gone through a lot. She got married when she was around 15. She was a true patriot who wanted her country to flourish. It’s an honor to be able to pay a tribute to her through ‘Manikarnika’.” For those who joined in late, Kangana shares the co-director credit for this biopic, which will hit the screens on January 25.
