The cast of actress Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi has a new addition and he is former Bigg Boss contestant Vivek Mishra. The actor is very happy and feels that the movie will help to educate people.
"I'm really happy to star in the film. The film itself will help to educate the generation. It will teach the meaning of love for the nation. Queen of Jhansi was an inspiring figure," Vivek said in a statement.
"I enjoy being a part of such movies. Earlier, I was a part of Aamir Khan's 'Mangal Pandey: The Rising'," he added.
On his role in the upcoming film, he said: "I am playing Sipahsalar. My role will be close to Jhalkari Bai, portrayed by actress Ankita Lokhande."
Ankita, who is popular for playing the lead in Pavitra Rishta, will be making her Bollywood debut with the film.
Vivek finds Kangana "kind as we can imagine how Laksmi Bai was. She has a very pure and lovely soul. She is beautiful and amazingly talented".
