Kangana Ranaut starrer 'Manikarnika' official teaser is finally out and we are served to the era when the brave queen of Jhansi is up against the British East India Company. The teaser begins with a strong voice over of Amitabh Bachchan describing our nation as 'Soney ki chidiyan'; here comes our protagonist Kangana as the queen on the battlefield slaughtering a British flag and that's how to mark an entry as she slays it playing this larger than life role.

The attire and Kingdom set up seems authentic and more importantly, it is the angry eyes of the queen that enters the battlefield with her child and a sword in her hand embracing with the shield. The walking and horse riding sequences are magnificently shot and we sense the grace of the Queen of Jhansi. Click here to watch the official teaser.
