Manikarnika: Kangana Ranuat looks breathtaking in new stills as Rani Laxmibai

Kangana Ranaut is Bollywood’s most sought after actress. She has given some really versatile and mind-blowing performances in her decade long career in Bollywood with films like Queen, Tanu Weds Manu & Fashion among others. The diva is geared up to play the role of Queen Laxmibai in the upcoming period drama Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The film has been directed by Krish Jagarlamudi and its teaser is scheduled to release on the web tomorrow. 
Recently, the 31-year-old actress' team took to their official Instagaram handle and shared two new stills of Kangana from her upcoming film. In both the photos, Kangana looks fierce and ready for a battle.  
One of the stills was posted with the caption, "Manikarnika will make every Indian Proud. I am ecstatic to showcase the teaser to everyone on the special occasion of Gandhi Jayanti - #KanganaRanaut."
However, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi has been making headlines for the past few months for all the wrong reasons. First, it was because of Krish, who left the film mid-way to direct the NTR biopic. Then actor Sonu Sood left the project because of scheduling issues for re-shoots. And recently, it was reported that the film's producer has been sacked. 
Interestingly, apart from acting, Kangana has worn the director's hat for her upcoming release. She has stepped in to shoot just the patchwork on Krish' behalf as he is busy shooting the NTR biopic.
Last month, Krish unveiled the first poster Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi on his Twitter handle. In the poster Kangana can be seen on the war field, fighting her enemies with her son tied at the back.
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is slated to release on January 25. Apart from this Kangana will also be seen in Prakash Kovelamudi's film Mental Hai Kya alongside Rajkummar Rao.
