The actress has asserted that is quite content with the way her career has shaped up so far in 11 year of her journey in Bollywood.

"It is not the same film which Ketan Mehta was going to direct. Ketan Mehta and A V Shankar are a different team".

Speaking to Mirror from Varanasi, Kangana explained the choice of location saying Manikarnika, popularly known as Rani Lakshmibai, was born in Varanasi so they made a decision to kick off the film there with the announcement of the release date, April 27, 2018. Reportedly the actress took over the project without Ketan.

The story of the film "Manikarnika" is penned by Vijayendra Prasad and directed by Krish Jagarlamudi.

Manikarnika is presented by Zee Studios, produced by Kamal Jain on Kairos Kontent Studios banner. But both the films were offered to me.

Laxmibai was born as Manikarnika in Varanasi. Thousands of people gathered at the banks of river Ganga to witness this attractive actress carrying out the ritual and seek blessing of the mighty river for her upcoming film. "Even the two scripts were different", Kangana said.

This is Krish's second Hindi film after Akshay Kumar-starrer Gabbar Is Back, in 2015. "I think the shoot will go on for 80-90 days". "This film is essentially not an action film but action is going to be a very important aspect".

The 30-year-old actress, who will play warrior queen Rani Laxmibai in the movie, arrived at the Dasashwamed Ghat with the entire team of her movie and performed the rituals. The film's producer said, "We'll begin shooting in June".
