Bollywood should quit trying making movies to copy bahubali, it’s a once in a decade movie. .. everyone comes out and says it’s like bahubali be it be padmavat or whatever , fact is there is only one bahubali

I love her.

The haters can keep hating because they will burn the next time she gets an award. They’ll burn even more when she gets her next big hit. She always trumps when you least expect her to. After those lousy Ajay-Sanjay films came Queen. After Revolver Rani came TWMR, and when Hrithik tried to shut her up, she won her third National Award, her second after Queen. So don’t worry haters, she’ll be back to slay. With style.

India doesn't understand nuances in movie or in politcs. hence the country in danger. Garib gariber and Ambani gets cash by bjp because they are not richer yet!!

YAY. We can always rely on Kangana to pick kick-ass roles, no jumping into fires, sacrificing yourself in the name of honour, Jhansi ki Rani fought to the end! Waiting for the film.

Bahubali is big budget film & this one is controlled budget film. Plus kangana doesn't fit in action film as she has petite body. Priyanka chopra is the better fit. This will be revolver rani 2.

Waiting for kangana aka manikarnika

hope this movie does well as Bahubali

The last movie this director made was Gabbar is Back. Lol

Yes And I am queen Elizabeth... this looks worse than a colours TV serial.

Enough of Bahubali and its copies. Give us a break. Flop Kangana

"he wrote the entire story within the span of a month". That is bcoz the script was stolen by that fraud woman from Ketan Mehta when he was in hospital and he had researched the subject for over 2 years. She just took it to Vijayendra prasad to cover up her theft

Oh! So you were there in that hospital watching this 'drama' unfolding in front of your eyes! Hmm.....well If you base your opinions on some news reports then I would like to inform you that Ketan Mehta accused Kangana only for "hijacking" his idea of making a film on Laxmi bai not for "stoling" his script. As Ketan had approached Kangana with a few lines of the plot which he wished to develop in near future. I failed to understand if people like to form their 'judgements' on else's life based on a news article(without the views of the person talked about) then shouldn't they consider both side of the story? Why we tend to pick one-sided -ed view to feed our egos......Plz think about it......

Ketan has actually wanting to make this project for over a decade now. He approached several actresses and somehow they all walked away. I feel bad for how the situation was handled but I am positive that Vijayendra Prasad is perfectly capable of writing the screenplay within the span of a month. His work is legendary and Rani Laxmibai isn't a new story. Every Indian grew up hearing about her bravery.

Bahubali wasn’t made in a year

Who said it was?

Because they are making this movie in a year and comparing it with Baahubali

Look her feisty expression, BOSSy Actress.

Maha Rani Laxmi bai herself a Brand name ❤❤❤❤❤
