Kangana Ranaut 's movie "Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi" a periodic drama was released on January 25. In this movie, Kangana Ranaut has portrayed the role of “Rani lakshmibai” of Jhansi. This was one of her major projects in Bollywood. The character of ‘Rani lakshmibai’ has always attracted film producers and directors. Sohrab Modi, one of India's big filmmakers, made a movie called Jhansi Ki Rani in 1953.
In this film, Modi's wife Mehtab played the title role, while Sohrab Modi was in the role of Rajguru. The film was also released in 1956 dubbed in English as 'The Tiger and the Flame'. It is credited as the first Technicolor film made in India.
The queen of Jhansi was a big budget movie, but it was a flop at the box office. Saurabh Modi had a tremendous loss from this movie. It was said that Modi made a mistake by giving a lead role to his 35-year-old wife. This film is one of India's biggest flop films. Two beautiful Bollywood actresses also wanted to play the role of Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi. ‘Sushmita Sen’ did a lot of research on this subject and started preparing for her role. The film's budget was very high, and no one was ready to put any money on the film. So Sushmita changed her mind and the movie was never made.
On Aishwarya Rai, Ketan Mehta planned to make a film on Jhansi's queen. Aishwarya was also very interested in this role, but in the end, the movie was canceled due to a very huge budget. Aishwarya’s and Sushmita Sen's dream never came true. The dream of Aishwarya and Sushmita could not be completed, but Kangana Ranaut managed to become the queen of Jhansi in the film. Kangana has done the work which Sushmita and Aishwarya were not able to do.
