Kangana Ranaut Confirms Biopic On Queen Of Kashmir
After winning critical and commercial success with Manikarnika, actress Kangana Ranaut confirms the second instalment, a period drama based on queen of Kashmir, the film is titled Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda.
Actress Kangana confirmed the film on her social media profile. She tweeted “India has been witness to the story of many bravehearts such as Rani of Jhansi. Another such untold heroic story is that of queen of Kashmir, who defeated Mahmud Ghaznavi not once but twice. @KamalJain_TheKJ and me are coming up with #ManikarnikaReturns : The Legend of Didda” (roughly translated from Hindi Tweet).
Didda was Queen of Kashmir who defeated Mehmood Ghaznavi twice in battle. Her one leg was polio stricken but she was one of the greatest warriors.
The new film will be bigger and mounted on an international scale, adding that the team intends to make a world class franchise of real life women heroes. The idea is to bring forgotten woman heroes who have constructed the true identity of Bharat, the sources added.
Kangana and producer Kamal Jain will join hands to bring back the franchise, after 2019’s Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi. The actress had a meeting with Jain last week and locked their new script.
