It was only recently that actress Deepika Padukone was seen performing Ganga Aarti on the banks of the Holy river in Varanasi alongside her mother Ujjala Padukone. This new film is titled "Manikarnika The Queen of Jhansi" and Bollywood Queen Kangna Ranaut plays the lead role as Rani Jhansi.

Kangana said, "She had a great sense of right and wrong, fair and unfair, just and unjust". The only thing that she cares about is her movies. Popular writer Vijayendra Prasad penned the script for the film and Shankar - Ehsan - Loy will render the soundtrack. "Look at Baahubali, it has broken all the records and that's what people want to see but to be honest 'Manikarnika - The Queen Of Jhansi' is not like a project ..."

Produced by Kamal Jain, the film is being directed by Radhakrishna, who is popularly known as Krish.

"Shankar said the team is a "dream team", I hope God gives huge power to create such music for this film which could do justice to the story", he said. If she was from some other country how would they celebrate her spirit. "I feel that there are projects and then there are films that fulfil something within you".

Now, Kangana has spilled the beans to Bollywood Life and confirmed that Manikarnika is her last film as an actress.

"When I signed this film my first thought was "How come there's no film on 'Jhansi ki Rani" yet?' I suddenly felt very fortunate that there isn't any yet". I still feel I haven't got into the field that I actually feel very passionate about, which is filmmaking. "I will focus on being a filmmaker", Kangana told a web portal.
