The film’s trailer will release tomorrow and the makers are all set to make sure that it’s a visual spectacle for the audiences.

Knowing that it’s a prop drama, we shot and wrapped 60% of the film in October. Almost 70% of the film’s work is in VFX. The kind of speed with which we all are working has been extraordinary and challenging but we are at it. We are really looking forward to showing the essence of Manikarnika’s life through glimpses of the film, and eventually the story of the film which is our hero”.
Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios, says “Some stories are meant to be told on a grand scale and experienced on the big screen. Manikarnika is a powerful story of a warrior, queen and mother – a historical icon who inspires generations even today. I am hopeful that the audiences will be thrilled with the trailer, which will give them a glimpse of our film – an emotionally riveting and visual extravaganza”.
