Kangana Ranaut is known for her daring acts and even more daring statements. Currently she is all set to show her power as Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi, a biopic on freedom fighter Jhansi Lakshmi Bai.
Nick Powell, Hollywood stunt choreographer who shot the action scenes of Manikarnika speaking to scribes showered praises on Kangana.
He said “The idea was to show a warrior who has been learning the ropes from a young age. Kangana practiced sword fighting for eight hours a day, and convincingly pulled off each stunt. I have worked with the likes of Russell Crowe, Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, but she gave me the unique experience in which an actress was leading the pack. There were times when she pulled off smoother stunts than Tom Cruise.”
He revealed “They (filmmakers) wanted to better what they had achieved. So when I requested for an additional crew of 25 experts who specialize in rope work and sword fights, they immediately agreed.”
