Since the an­nounce­ment of the film, Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi, the am­bi­tious pro­ject has been touted as one of the mostan­tic­i­pated films of 2019. The mak­ers will re­lease the of­fi­cial teaser of the epic war drama to­mor­row on Gandhi Jayanti. A source from the pro­duc­tion re­veals that the film has roped in the best of tech­ni­cians for the pro­ject. “Mul­ti­ple Na­tional Award win­ners — Kan­gana Ra­naut, Shankar, Eh­saan and Loy who com­posed the mu­sic of the film, to lyri­cist Pra­soon Joshi — it’s a dream team that has come to­gether to work on the film. Not just that, Hol­ly­wood’s cel­e­brated ac­tion chore­og­ra­pher Nick Pow­ell has chore­ographed the ac­tion se­quences.” Shariq Pa­tel, CEO, Zee Stu­dios, says, “A trib­ute to Rani Lak­shmi Bai, the film cel­e­brates and salutes the ex­tra­or­di­nary jour­ney of In­dia's fiercest war­rior queen, who sac­ri­ficed her life fight­ing for free­dom. We are ex­cited to launch the teaser to­mor­row, which gives a glimpse into the grand scale on which the film is mounted.” Pro­ducer Ka­mal Jain adds, “I feel a sense of im­mense pride to present the larger-than-life story of Manikarnika. A sym­bol of hero­ism and hu­man­ity, Manikarnika is our trib­ute to one of In­dia’s great­est free­dom fight­ers — Rani of Jhansi, who re­mains a house­hold name even to­day, af­ter decades.” Pro­duced by Zee Stu­dios and Ka­mal Jain, Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi, di­rected by Radha Krishna Ja­gar­la­mudi, is slated to re­lease on Jan­uary 25, 2019.
