Undisputedly, Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi is one of Kangana Ranaut’s most ambitious projects. The actress has gone to extensive lengths in the past to not just promote the film but also prep for it. And now we hear that in order to keep up with the dates, the actress has taken charge since the director of the film; Krish is keeping busy with his next, the NTR biopic.
Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi, which has completed its shoot schedule, is currently in the post production stage. From VFX to a few patchworks, the film is yet to receive its finishing touches which are generally taken up by the director. However, in this case, he is busy with another project. The NTR Biopic, featuring Nandamuri Balakrishna and Vidya Balan in lead roles, has already gone on floor.
