Finally, the wait is over; here is the official look of Actress Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkari Bai in her debut film- Manikarnika.
The character of Jhalkari Bai was a prominent one. A woman soldier in Rani Laxmibai’s army, Jhalkari Bai eventually rose to the position of an advisor to the Queen. She was a Dalit hero and is still being worshipped by them. There are many statues in her honor but yet she is one true unsung hero.
To give her 100 percent to the character, Ankita trained in horse-riding and sword fighting for 30-35 days, under the guidance of Hollywood action director, Nick Powell. While the audience is ready to witness the epic drama, Ankita Lokhande’s action will definitely add up to the excitement.
The film is slated to release on 25th Jan, 2019
