Actress Kangana Ranaut, who recently took control of her Twitter handle, earlier managed by her team, shared a throwback post. Kangana shared the story behind an accident she met while shooting for her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The actress played the iconic role of Rani Laxmi Bai and was seen performing many action sequences in the film. In the picture shared by the actress, one can see a deep cut on her forehead between her brows.
She revealed that she got the injury on the sets of the film while shooting for a sword fighting scene. As described by Kangana, her co-star Nihar Pandya accidentally lifted a real sword that was heavy and hit her head causing profuse bleeding. She had to get 15 stitches post-accident but flaunted the scar proudly.
मणिकर्णिका का पहला दिन था,तलवारबाज़ी का सीन एक महीना रेहर्स हो चुका था,मगर पहले ही शॉट में सह कलाकार ने रॉंग क्यू पे गलती से लगभग एक किलो की असली तलवार को मेरे सिर पे दे मारा. मैंने कहा लक्ष्मीबाई ने मुझे पेशवाओं का तिलक लगाया है जो सदा मेरे चेहरे पे चमकेगा #झांसी_की_रानी_कंगना pic.twitter.com/90HLxG29mq
