A new song from Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming movie, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi was released on social media on Tuesday. Titled Bharat, the song is about patriotism and dedication to one’s country. The song features Manikarnika from when she was a child to how she grows up to be a brave woman. We also get a glimpse of Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkari Bai who also played an important role in Rani Laxmibai’s army. The lyrics of the song have been written by Prasoon Joshi and the music has been composed by the musical trio Shankar Ehsaan Loy. Check out the song below:
Kangana and the film’s team launched the song with an event in New Delhi. The event took place in a palace like setting and Kangana lit a lamp before beginning the event. Speaking about the song, she said, ''This song is the spirit of our film. The aathma of our film. Delhi is the spirit of India, its aathma and the heart as well. So there is no better place to launch this film than in Delhi. That’s why we have come here, to launch the song and to make you all a part of the event.''
Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi is directed by Krish Jagarlamudi and is slated to release on January 25. The film is written by Prasoon and Baahubali writer KV Vijayendra Prasad.
Earlier, Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi, Why Cheat India and Thackeray were scheduled to release on the Republic Day weekend, but the makers of Why Cheat India advanced their release to January 18 when makers of Thackeray requested them to do so.
