Manikarnika has grand war sequences: Vijayendra Prasad

The writer says war episodes will be the major highlight of the film

Published: 18th September 2017

Writer-director Vijayendra Prasad, who has penned the story of the upcoming epic drama Manikarnika, starring Kangana Ranaut, says the war episodes will be the biggest highlight of the film. Being directed by Krish, the film will be an epic biographical drama about Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi.

"I had agreed to pen the story only if the makers roped in Krish to direct. They liked his work in Gautamiputra Satakarni and brought him on board. Since we are dealing with history and hard facts, we did a lot of research for this project," says Vijayendra Prasad. 

Kangana plays the Queen of Jhansi in the film, which will be high on action. "The war episodes will be the major highlight of the film. It will be shot on a scale that has not been seen before on Indian screens," he adds.

Prasad, who has also penned the story of upcoming Tamil film Mersal, starring Vijay, says he would like to write a sequel to Telugu blockbuster Magadheera, directed by his son SS Rajamouli.
