Taking a leaf from her hit 2019 period drama Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Kanagana Ranaut is now all set to take the real life women heroes franchise forward. On Thursday, the actress has announced her second installment in the franchise which is titled Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda. Kangana will star in the film which is touted to be bigger and better than the earlier film. 

Sources close to the development revealed that the new film will be bigger and mounted on an international scale, adding that the team intends to make a world class franchise of real life women heroes. The idea is to bring forgotten women heroes who have constructed the true identity of Bharat, the source added.

Turns out, work on the film has already started. Kangana and producer Kamal Jain will join hands to bring back the franchise after 2019's Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi. The actress even had a meeting with Kamal Jain last week and locked their new script.

As for the sequel, it will revolve around Didda, who was the Queen of Kashmir and defeated Mehmood Ghaznavi twice in battle. Despite being struck by polio in one leg, she was one of the greatest warriors. 

Kangana plans to complete her ongoing commitments like Dhaakad and Tejas. She will only begin shooting for the new film in January 2022.

This movie will never get made even though she is using her own money because no one else will support her. A movie needs support staff, distributors etc and no one wants to work with her.

Kashmir is beautiful.. quaint.. and it has seen some very bad years recently. I just want a good period movie. I don't want the religious baggage that will come with it.

Now whom will she throw out of the movie to be in the limelight like she did previously. Not interested in her movies now, use to watch her movies but will avoid this arrogant woman from now onwards. She is nothing but an opportunist. Used SSR name for her own agenda. Now she does not even bother to talk about SSR. She fooled all SSRians with her fake sympathy. She just wanted to get back at Karan Johar.

First I used to dislike Kangana but since she has started all drama I have started hating her. I will not watch her any film. As a Kashmiri I don't want her in this film.
