Leaked images of Kangana Ranaut in Manikarnika showcase her as the brave princess of Jhansi

After several months since the initial announcement and poster-release, we finally have the first look of Kangana Ranaut as the 'Queen of Jhanshi' in the upcoming period-drama - 'Manikarnika'

The actress was spotted donning a royal ensemble during the shooting of the highly-anticipated flick in Jaipur, when people managed to get a few shots of the star in action, which have made their way to internet.

Wearing a regal headgear, swords and an ethnic ensemble - the 'Queen' actress looked every bit of 'fierce' needed to pull of the celebrated historical figure.

Here are some more breathtaking shots taken from the sets of the movie:

Kangana Ranaut is one of those rare leading ladies of Indian cinema who always manages to get "into the skin of her characters" - as shown through her past performances.

As we previously reported, the much-anticipated big-budget saga is based on the life of the iconic Queen of Jhansi, who was known for her resilience and bravery. The movie will serve as the first historical drama for Ranaut as a leading actress, who's previously portrayed a variety of modern women from various demographics.

The actress was also recently hurt during a sword-fight scene while shooting for the movie - something she seemed to have taken a lot of pride in. "If you give blood to play such a woman, it’s worth it," she said in an interview. "To be honest, I’m only happy. You can’t hope to immortalize the greatest warrior of all times without having a battle scar on your face. So it’s justified.”

Manikarnika is scheduled for a release on April 27, 2018.
