We last saw Bollywood actor Sonu Sood do films like ‘Tutak Tutak Tutiya’ and ‘Kung Fu Yoga’. And now we’re going to see him in the Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi‘. Since we’ve seen him do historical period drama like ‘Jodha Akbar’, it will be a delight to see him in this genre again.
A source close to the actor said, “Sonu will essay the role of a warrior, Sadashiv in the historical drama, alongside Kangana Ranaut. The versatile actor has already begun his prep for the film being directed by Krish.”
Even Sonu is quite excited to do this film. He confirmed the news by saying, “It is challenging to play a real life character because you know that it existed in the history and you have certain parameters to follow and stay within. I’m sure when you’re working with a brilliant director like Krish, a huge ensemble and a brilliant technical team, there is no way to go wrong. So we are all on our toes to give our best.”
When recently Kangana got bruised while rehearsing for a sword fighting sequence, she got stitches on her forhead, which she decided to use it as an added advantage to her character in the film. About the same she said, “I am a bit embarrassed to be thrilled to have a battle scar on my face. Also, people from my team have been telling me that it’s like that Peshwa teeka that Manikarnika wore. It’s a bit dramatic but I am excited that my face was covered in blood and I got a genuine and authentic glimpse of the Queen’s life.”
‘Manikarnika’ is slated to release on the 27th of April 2018.
