The poster was shared by filmmaker Krish Jagarlamudi and trade analyst Taran Adarsh on the occasion of 72nd Independence Day to add to the patriotic mood. Based on the life of Rani Laxmi Bai. The poster appears to be a still from a battlefield. The poster shows Ranaut in her warrior queen avatar, wielding a blood-soaked sword with her young son strapped to her back. "It's an iconic role". In fact after riding the horse for two days straight I got a fever.

Mounted on a large-scale, Manikarnika- The Queen Of Jhansi is a story of courage, strength, and determination, that celebrates the extraordinary story of Rani Laxmi Bai, a symbol of heroism in India.

Talking about her role in the film, Kangana was earlier quoted as saying, "When I signed this film my first thought was "How come there's no film on 'Jhansi ki Rani" yet?' I suddenly felt very fortunate that there isn't any yet". The film also stars Atul Kulkarni as Tatya Tope, Sonu Sood as Sadashiv and Ankita Lokhande as Jhalkarbai. Initially slated for a 29 November release, the film, produced by Zee Studios and directed by Krrish will now hit cinemas on 25 January, 2019.
