Kangana said that action sequences in Manikarnika were quite challenging. I was only fifty kilos so couldnt even complete thirty minutes of stunt practice at a stretch. Later with rigorous training, I was able to pull off all the stunts in the film.
Besides plays Rani Lakshmi Bai of Jhansi, Kangana also directed a part of the film. The action scenes were shot by Krish and after he opted out of the film, I directed the drama part. It was quite a challenging process as I have to quickly come back and check the monitor after every shot. As I spent more time reading the script and knew more about my character, I managed to pull it off.
The films producer Kamal Jain said that as Rani Lakshmi Bai is a well known historical figure, he feels that the film has a good scope to score big in Tamil and Telugu box office.
Manikarnika is all set to release in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi on January 25.
