Kangana Ranaut perform Ganga aarti in Varanasi

Musicians Ehsaan Shankar and Pritam Joshi at Manikarnika poster launch

The sassiest actress of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut, never cared what the world thinks about her.

"I'm so blessed to be here".

The actor unveiled a 20-feet poster of the film at the Dasashwamedh Ghat.

Today, on 4 May SEL will perform live at the Dashashwamedh Ghat of Benaras to launch Kangana's first look poster of the film. She clarified that Ketan's movie was in English and since it didn't start even after two years, she chose to take up this one. She opted for a gold sari and teamed it up with tangerine brocade blouse.

The actress, who will play Rani Laxmi Bai in the film, was present at its press conference, which was also attended by Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani and Loy Mendonsa, who have composed music for the film. She hoped that people would love her as Manikarnika. That's a quality I identify with her.




When asked what would be the title of her biopic if it is ever made, Kangana said, "I feel I have a long way to go".

The look has Kangana sporting short hair and wearing simple jewellery and a turban on her head. The British had given her an option of a life of servility and death.

Back home in Mumbai, amidst as-yet-unconfirmed buzz that she has split with Rangoli professionally, comes the news that the latter is pregnant and Ranaut is looking at a change in life when the baby arrives.

The film will be produced by Kamal Jain and it will be released in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil languages.

Veteran writer V Vijendra Prasad, the writer of "Baahubali" and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", has teamed up with Prasoon Joshi for the script of the film.
