Manikarnika, a film based on the queen of Jhansi launched its first trailer on 3rd October. The teaser begins with a powerful narration by Amitabh Bachan and in mere two minutes, the trailer showcases Kangana as the fierce queen of Jhansi.
The story of Manikarnika depicts the different aspects and struggle period of Rani Laxmibai’s life. It features Kangana Ranaut in the lead role as Rani Laxmibai and supporting actors like Jishu Sengupta, Suresh Oberoi, Danny Denzongappa, Atul Kulkarni, Ankita Lokhande and Zeeshan Ayub in prominent roles.
Written by the makers of Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Baahubali, Manikarnika’s first trailer was welcomed among the audience with love and affection and the girl gang of Manikarnika couldn’t be happier. Here’s how they celebrated it.
Outfits of Manikarnika:
Designed by Neeta Lulla, Manikarnika’s outfits have been made with Khadi, raw cotton and brocade. In a recent interview, Neeta said “I feel khadi embodies a lot of character. I feel everyone (not just designers but actors too) in the public sphere have a social responsibility to promote the fabric of freedom, not only because it involves history and heritage but because khadi has the potential to employ the largest number of people in rural areas. Wearing khadi means paying homage to craftsperson who spin the yarn on the charkha. Even in the machine-age, they work round-the-clock to produce the hand-spun fabric.”
Neeta also added “I think khadi needs to be popularised to a great extent and mainstream cinema will be able to do full justice in promoting the fabric to the millennial generation and the masses alike,”
What did we love the most?
Manikarnika’s stunning eye-catching statement jewellery.
Kangana’s statement jewellery stole our hearts in seconds and we are in love with Manikarnika’s look already. The combination of heavy golden queen’s necklace and statement silver choker necklace is imparting a true queen feel to Kangana’s overall look. In addition to her stranded necklaces, we loved her traditional Marathi Nath and heavy matha-Patti. Kangana’s traditional set of heavy bangles, jhumkis, and hair jewellery are not only eye-catching but also bold in very sophisticated manner.
