The first trailer of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is here and Kangana Ranaut shines as a warrior mother and a fearless queen. The 3-minute long trailer is the journey of a simple girl Manu to becoming a fierce nationalist queen.
The trailer starts with Kangana killing a tiger with arrow. She gets married to the king of Jhansi, but her world turns upside down when her husband dies. The East India Company wants to take Jhansi under its control, but Laxmibai is not ready for it. This is also the time when the Indians start to revolt against the British oppressors.
At several instances, we see Kangana controlling the sword with precision and riding the horse like a pro. We also meet Danny Denzongpa as Ghulam Ghaus Khan and Ankita Lokhande as Manu's trusted lieutenant Jhalkari Bai.
The trailer description read, "She fought for freedom 160 years ago. She fought with her head held high, She fought till she dropped, Yet, never gave up her pride, her motherland, her beloved, Jhansi! It’s time to salute India’s greatest warrior queen! Experience and relive the proudest chapter in our history. Presenting the epitome of a warrior, a mother and a Queen."
