It has been reported that Sonu Sood has been roped into ‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi’ starring Kangna Ranaut. Sood will be playing the role of a warrior in the film.

According to the Times Of India, Sood will be essaying the character of Sadashiv, and has already started his preparations for the film. “It’s 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,” said Sood.

The last time Sood was part of a historical period film was in ‘Jodha Akbhar’ (2008) and, before that, ‘Shaheed-E-Azam’ (2002).

‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi’ is slated to release in April 2018.
