Manikarika: Ankita Lokhande shares first look of her debut film

Television actress Ankita Lokhande debuted with Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Manikarnika: Queen Of Jhansi’ and she released her first look from the film. The picture is blurred and could be hardly recognised.

Pavitra Rishta actress who makes a debut with this period film shared a blurry image on Instagram and wrote, "jhalkari bai definitely knows the way to even a modern man’s heart ! #Manikarnika @vaibhav.tatwawaadi #ItsBlurForAReason#jhalkaribai."

The picture also has actor Vaibhav Tatwawaadi with her. In the periodic drama, Ankita will be seen as a women soldier in Rani Laxmibai's army.

In an interview to a Mumbai daily earlier, Ankita had said "I'm indebted to Kamal(Jain) sir for this challenging role in a big-budget film scripted by Baahubali writer KV Vijayendra Prasad alongside a National Award-winning actress like Kangana, who exudes power and is an inspiration to all women." She waited for three years to find a perfect debut film and has no regrets about waiting for so long. Lokhande said, " I was always a content girl. I stayed with Pavitra Rishta for six years. Even after other left, I carried on because a mother doesn't abandon her baby. No regrets, my TV show gave me name, fame and money; and now I hope to repeat that success on a bigger platform."

‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ directed by Krish also stars Sonu Sood, Suresh Oberoi and Atul Kulkarni.
