I learnt horse riding for this film. It was quite a quick session where they taught me how to manoeuvre a horse. Here I was just following Kangana’s directions. Her idea was that my character comes across as a normal man and not someone from a particular period.”

The film tells the entire story and describes the life of India’s most fierce warrior queen Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi and her war against the British East India Company, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
