150-year-old weapons for Kangana

Much hyped and one of the most awaited films of 2019 Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, has people and film critics guessing as to what would be the film like. It is set to hit the screens on January 25 and will lock the horns with Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 and Emraan Hashmi's Cheat India at the box office.

The actress shared an interesting fact about the film, which will raise your excitement for it to another level. Talking about it, the actress shared an Instagram post about the action sequences and wrote, “#KanganaRanaut & Action director #NickPowell ensured that they used artillery that were prevalent in 19th century. Staying true to Rani Laxmibai's weapons of choice, Ranaut – apart from sword fighting – used caplock pistols (a small one-shot handgun) & Brown Bess cavalry carbine "Rifles were new for people at that time; only a few used them. While the British army used Enfield rifles, Rani Laxmibai preferred swords. I was fascinated with the 150-year-old weapons we used in the film. I also had to carry a shield that weighed about 5kg.”

Now, that is what we call a real piece of information shared by none other than the direct source.
