Presenting Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkari Bai in Manikarnika!

13th December 2018

Finally, the wait is over; here is the official look of actress Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkari Bai in her debut film- 'Manikarnika. The character of Jhalkari Bai'. A woman soldier in Rani Laxmibai's army, Jhalkari Bai eventually rose to the position of an advisor to the Queen. She was a Dalit hero and is still being worshipped by them. There are many statues in her honour but yet she is one true unsung hero.

Ankita looks super close to her character with minute details that nurture her character. The crown-like little tattoo on her neck. A saffron saree that suits best at her tied knot hair and dot bindi which adds a bit more authenticity to her character look.

All set to make an impact with her debut Bollywood film Ankita leaves us with conviction. To give her 100 percent to the character, Ankita trained in horse-riding and sword fighting for 30-35 days, under the guidance of Hollywood action director, Nick Powell.

While the audience is ready to witness the epic drama, Ankita Lokhande's action will definitely add up to the excitement. Moreover, till now Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi (also known as Krish), the director of the project had left the film along with actor Sonu Sood. The film is slated to release on 25th Jan 2019
