The Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi was positively received by the audience due to the impressive performance of the actress along with the depiction of the bravery of the courageous Rani Laxmibai. The film also marked Kangana's first stint as a director. It seems that the film has added another feather to its cap. The film will soon be releasing in Japan on January 3, 2020. Along with Kangana, the film was also helmed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi. The film revolved around the inspirational tale of Rani Laxmibai who fought bravely against the Britishers and refused to surrender her homeland Jhansi to them.
She is also touted to the first woman to wage a war against the Britishers for independence. Vibha Chopra of the Head-Global Syndication and International Film Distribution, Zee Entertainment announced the release of the film in Japan. She revealed to a publication that the film is an epic tale which rightfully showcases the valour, sacrifices and strength of Rani Laxmibai. She further added that now the film will strike a chord with the global audience with its release in Japan. She also revealed the film to be Zee Studio International's second outing in the territory after the Akshay Kumar starrer Kesari.

Vibha also said that by taking the film far and wide to unconventional territories, the main aim is to showcase the viewers, the rich culture of India along with the story of a true hero who courageously fought for her nation. Reportedly, before its release, the film was also embroiled in a controversy as some political factions claimed that the film will have some depiction of a relationship between Rani Laxmibai and a British officer. Some viewers reportedly also protested the depiction of the queen dancing to a song in the movie. They cited the reason that a member of a royal family would never engage in activities like dancing and singing, labelling the sequence as 'against tradition.' The film had reportedly managed to cross the ₹100 crore mark within four weeks of its release. It also starred Atul Kulkarni, Danny Denzongpa, Ankita Lokhande and Suresh Oberoi in pivotal roles.
