Ankita Lokhande in 'Manikarnika'

The official look of Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkari Bai in her debut film ‘Manikarnika’ has been unveiled.

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, Lokhande 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, Lokhande’s action will certainly add up to the excitement.

The film is slated to release on 25th January 2019.
