Kangana Ranaut, who recently took over the reins of her upcoming period film, ‘Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi’ from director Krish, is leaving no stone unturned to make the most of it. The actress, who plays the titular role, will be seen pulling off some high octane stunts in the film. Recently, action director Nick Powell opened up about she performing stunts and this is what he thinks of her.

Nick Powell reportedly stated said that Kangana insisted on doing all the action stunts by herself and he is mighty impressed with her dedication. Kangana apparently practised sword fighting for eight hours a day, and convincingly pulled off each stunt. The action director also added that he has worked with actors like Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt but Kangana reportedly gave him an unique experience where an actress was leading the pack.

‘Manikarniaka-The Queen Of Jhansi’ is slated to hit the theatres on January 25, 2019.
