Actress Kangana Ranaut, who is busy shooting for Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi recently confirmed that it will release this year.

She made the announcement while interacting with media after watching Alia Bhatt starrer Raazi in Mumbai recently.
There was quite a buzz about the release date the film with some reports saying it was set to hit theatre screens in April this year but now the release date of the period drama has been pushed further.

On the delay in its release, Kangana said: “If you see, we started shooting of Manikarnika... in the month of May last year and now it’s been only one year since we started shooting.

“We launched the film in Varanasi on May 5 and we started shooting for it in June-July last year. I think when you make a film on huge scale, then it normally takes one or one and half year but I can say that this year we will be able to release the film.”

Praising Raazi, Kangana said, “I really liked Raazi. It was awesome. Meghna (Gulzar) did a splendid job with the film. I think her film is going to cross Rs 100 crore at the box office.
“I have no words to express performance of Alia (Bhatt) in the film. She is so good in the film. Meghna and Alia invited me on the trial of their film but I couldn’t attend it because I was busy shooting for my film, then I promised them that I will watch the film soon. I am going to send Alia a congratulatory message for her film. I think Alia is most definitely undisputed queen. Its Alia’s world and we are just living in it.”

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is an epic biographical film based on the life of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi. It is being directed by Krish and produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain & Nishant Pitti.
