Kangana Ranaut Haves A First Try At Directing In "Manikarnika" After Feeling Underutilized In Acting

Kanchana Ngan |Jan 30, 2019

After the success of "Queen" in 2014, Kangana Ranaut started to feel underutilised, which led her to the decision of taking up direction in "Manikarnika."

The young queen of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut, is on the way preparing for her upcoming release, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi. After her consecutive achievements from Queen to Tanu Weds Manu, the movie promises to be a big hit at the beginning of 2019 as taking flight at the box office.

Kangana Ranaut is successful with the image of a queen.

In Manikarnika, not only is Kangana Ranaut the female lead, but she also participates in directing as her first directorial attempt. Working with prominent Krish, the principal director, she shared how much she could learn by her unique points of view on various matters. Because it is her very first trial in the directorial field, she showed strong determination to do her best.

Also in a recent interview with Bombay Times, Kangana confessed her sincere desire to become a director. Actually, that dream was initiated right after the blockbuster Queen's exceptional success. Feeling underutilised, she decided to take up directing, even producing a short film on her own. Despite full recognition she received after that, she seemed not to be able to find eagerness or self-satisfaction, simply because "Queen was just like a hobby film for everyone involved." "At that point, I started thinking that acting is not something for me and I must pursue direction," shared Kangana. However, not until Manikarnika did she have a possible opportunity to follow her passion.

Manikarnika, also starring Ankita Lokhande, will be the actress' introduction to theatre screen after being stuck with television for 6 years. Her attempt is proved through the fact that she has to change most habits in daily life so that she can portray the role of Rani Laxmibai. The movie is estimated to be the highest-budget movie for a female-oriented Hindu movie.

Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is scheduled to have its premiere on 25 January.
