From Kangana Ranaut to have taken over the directorial reins of her upcoming period drama Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi to Sonu Sood storming out of the film owing to differences with the actress, Kangana's much-awaited film has been in the news for quite sometime now. Recently, we had reported that Kangana and the makers are reshooting the major portions of Manikarnika and so, the actress is giving more than her 100 percent to finish the shoot before time so that the film releases on the decided date. Now the latest we hear is that Kangana is all set to shoot for a classical number with onscreen husband Jisshu Sengupta; the song will be choreographed by Saroj Khan. Yes, you read that right. While choreographer will be directing a classical number for Kangan; while another song, featuring Ankita Lokhande, is in the works.
A source close to the development, in a statement to Mumbai Mirror, informed, "Saroj was brought on board recently for the special number which hints at the romance between Kangana and Jisshu’s characters. While rehearsals have been on since a few weeks now, the team starts shooting the song from September 18 for which a set has been created at Nitin Desai’s studio in Karjat.” However, the team is reportedly facing with the challenge of wrapping up the entire song shoot in just a day.
While we have been waiting for the teaser and trailer of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi with bated breath, to our surprise, recently, the makers announced that the teaser is expected to launch on Gandhi Jayanti (which is on October 2), with the trailer being targeted for mid-November. I am sure you can't wait to see the film hit the silver screens.
Helmed by Krish Jagarlamudi, Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is slated to release on January 25, 2019. Interestingly, the film is clashing with Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30.

The period drama will see Kangana essay the role of a warrior Queen Jhansi; the actress underwent hardcore physical training for the same. Watch this space for further updates.
