Super talented director Krish won wide applause for his films Kanche and Gautamiputra Satakarni which are said to be periodic dramas. The ace director has been appreciated for the quality of his films, which have been made on a decent budget and in a planned time frame. The ace director grabbed an opportunity to direct a Bollywood movie titled Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi which happened to be the life story of queen Rani Laxmibai. The movie has been officially launched recently in Varanasi and Kangna Ranaut is all set to play the title role in the movie.
The movie has been initially titled Kangna Ranaut and Ketan Mehta was initially on board to direct the movie. After working for years, the director walked out of the project due to undisclosed reasons. Then it was Kangna who referred Krish for the project as she happened to watch the glimpses of Gautamiputra Satakarni. Even the film’s writer V Vijayendra Prasad is aware of Krish and recommended him. The regular shoot of Manikarnika will start from the mid of June in Madhya Pradesh. Kangna is currently preparing for her role in the movie.
