Kangana Ranaut, who mesmerized people in the superhit movie
Queen and the Tanu Weds Manu franchise, is all set to star in the
biopic of Rani Lakshmi Bai which will be directed by Ketan Mehta.
Kangana is taking her role very seriously as the warrior queen of
Jhansi. Rani Lakshmi Bai was skilled in horse riding and Kangana
wants to do justice to the role.
The actress has signed up for a crash course in horse riding in
Germany and it is reported that she'll be spending a lot of time
with horses and she'll also be staying in the stable working with
and feeding the horses.
A source close to the movie was quoted as saying, "The sessions
will provide her with an insight about the breeds of horses, their
diet, living conditions, the first-aid required for injuries and
their grooming techniques. Kangana is keen to learn the craft, so
living in a stable is the best way to prepare for the role."
Her publicist confirmed the news by saying, "Kangana will finish
shooting for Simran soon. Post that she will start promoting
Rangoon, which releases early next year. Once she is done with the
promotions, she will head to Germany (to learn horse riding)."
