Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who will be next seen as Rani Lakshmi Bai in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, was fascinated with the 150-year-old authentic weapons used in the film.

Zee Studios’ and Kamal Jain’s film, that showcases Rani Lakshmi Bai’s extraordinary journey, also has some of the best action/war sequences.

Sharing more about fierce warrior Jhansi Rani, Kangana said, “Rifles were new for people at that time, and only a few used them. While the British army used Enfield rifles, Rani Lakshmi Bai preferred swords. I was fascinated with those 150-year-old authentic weapons we used in the film.”

The actress further added, “The action sequences were quite intense but that did not deter anyone from giving their best. The shield I used weighed around 5 kgs. The entire team started getting ready at 3 AM, set up would take 6-7 hours so we would shoot only about 1 or 2 shots a day.”

Right from a massive crew, real weapons to hi-octane stunts, the much anticipated film will showcase a true visual spectacle for the audience.

Interestingly, Kangana Ranaut used two types of real weapons that were, reportedly, used in 1857—caplock pistols (one shot pistols) and cavalry brown bess (muzzle loading rifles). Nick Powell, the famous international action director, auditioned over 1000 fighters for the action sequences in the movie. From which, he had decided to pick the best two hundred for training. Once these two hundred were trained, they were responsible to train others. Not just that, the horses used in the movie also got a lot of trained for the action scenes.

The entire crew of the film trained for about 4 months to prepare for the epic war scenes in the film.

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is set to release on January 25 next year. Interestingly, the film will also be out in Tamil and Telugu simultaneously. The much-anticipated trailer of the movie will be out on December 18.
