Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi starring Kangana Ranaut is one of the most talked-about movies of the year. Actor Sonu Sood is playing Sadashiv in the historical drama, to be directed by Krish. Now, a picture of Sonu Sood across acing the royal look on the sets of Manikarnika has flooded the internet, we must say it looks impressive all the way. The period drama, which stars Kangana in the titular role, also features Atul Kulkarni in a pivotal role as Tatya Tope and Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkarbai.
Sonu Sood, who has previously been a part of period and historical dramas, including "Jodhaa Akbar" and "Shaheed-E- Azam", said that Manikarnika is a challenging film for him.
Earlier, Sonu Sood’s pictures for the film made huge headlines.
"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," Sonu Sood said in an earlier interview.
Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan, who have been engaged in a public war of words over their alleged affair, will battle it out at the box office as their films are scheduled to hit the cinema houses in January next year.
Kangana's one of the most ambitious projects "Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi" is set to clash with Hrithik' "Super 30" on January 25, 2019.
Manikarnika was apparently set to release this year in April and was later pushed to August 15 and then to September.
