Kangana Ranaut had kicked off the journey of 'Manikarnika', probably the most ambitious film of her career, by taking a dip in the Ganga river in May last year. After shooting for a year and a half for the period drama, the actress has finally wrapped up the film. The team celebrated the occasion in Mumbai late on Monday night. Videos from the bash have made its way to social media where we see the lead actress delightfully cutting the cake designed with a 'Manikarnika' poster, along with one of the producers of the film, Kamal Jain. The two celebrities are seen treating each other with a piece of cake. Neeta Lulla, who designed Kangana's shimmery outfit on the occasion, can also be seen in the video.
'Manikarnika' holds more importance for Kangana because it is her directorial debut. Though the actress refused to share directorial credits with the Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi aka Krish, she was the one responsible for helming the patchwork on the film.
The teaser of the film was unveiled a few days ago and had made headlines immediately. 'Manikarnika' is based on the story of Rani of Jhansi, who is considered as one of the bravest warriors during the Indian freedom movement in 1857. Kangana plays the titular character. The film also stars Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni, Jisshu Sengupta, Suresh Oberoi, Danny Denzongpa, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Nihaar Pandya, among others.
The story of the film is written by 'Baahubali' fame writer KV Vijayendra Prasad and music has been composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy with lyrics penned by Prasoon Joshi.
'Manikarnika', also produced by Zee Studios and Nishant Pitti, will hit the theatres on January 25, 2019. The film will be seen clashing with Hrithik Roshan's 'Super 30' and Emraan Hashmi's 'Cheat India.'
Apart from 'Manikarnika', Kangana will also be seen in 'Mental Hai Kya?' opposite Rajkummar Rao. The duo will also be seen together in Anurag Basu's next film. Kangana Ranaut has also signed Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's 'Panga'.
