“The prep will see her learning different kinds of holds and kicks. Learning the crocodile hold and wrist catch will be crucial. She will also need to undergo a change in terms of her physique,” (Quote Source: TOI)

We can’t wait to see her in a Kabaddi player avatar!

It is being directed by Krish and produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain & Nishant Pitti. Kangana plays the titular role in the film, which also stars Sonu Sood and Ankita Lokhande in pivotal roles.

Manikarnika’s success is very crucial for Kangana as she desperately needs a hit to secure her position, as her last outings both Rangoon and Simran proved to be huge box office disasters.
