Actor Kangana Ranaut has been on roll after the success of her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The biographical period drama, which released on 25 January, crossed the Rs 100 crore milestone at the box office in its fourth week.
The film was ridden with controversy both before and after its release. During its making there were allegedly some protests by certain groups, like the Karni Sena, against the film. In the days leading to its releases there was a much publicised fall out between Kangana Ranaut and the film’s director Krish. Kangana had taken over directing a part of the film and was even credited as the director of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi along with Krish.
But all ends that ends with success bash. The actor is beaming with pride and enjoying the box office results.
Now she says she is thinking about a series of movies on women warriors and was quoted as saying, “I’m planning a film on women warriors, and taking a trilogy forward. Manikarnika can be the first part and there can be one on Durgawati or Razia Sultan and there are so many of them.”
Last month, the news of Kangana directing her own biopic surfaced on the internet. The actress shed light on it and said, “The biopic will give a chance to look at my life objectively. It is not an expose of people in the industry. All the episodes will be there. It is on my struggle, which is unusual.”
The actress will next be seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga and will be starring opposite Jassie Gill. She also reuniting with her Queen co-star Rajkummar Rao in their upcoming movie titled Mental Hai Kya?
