A source added, “Sonu will essay the role of a warrior, Sadashiv in the historical drama in Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi, alongside Kangna Ranaut. The versatile actor has already begun his prep for the film directed by Krish.”
Excited about the film, Sonu Sood said, “It is challenging to play a real life character because you know that it existed in the history and you have certain parameters to follow and stay within. I’m sure when you’re working with a brilliant director like Krish, a huge ensemble and a brilliant technical team; there is no way to go wrong. So we are all on our toes to give our best.”
Let us remind you that Sonu Sood played the role of Aishwarya’s brother Sujamal in yet another historical drama Jodhaa Akbar which focused on the marriage alliance of the sixteen century Mughal Emperor and the Rajput princess.
