Didda was a Kashmiri ruler who defeated Mehmood Ghaznavi twice in battle
Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut will star in the second instalment of the Manikarnika franchise and play the role of Kashmiri ruler Didda.
Quoting sources close to the development, a report by news agency IANS, said that the new film will be bigger and mounted on an international scale, adding that the team intends to make a world-class franchise of real-life women heroes. The idea is to bring forgotten woman heroes who have constructed the true identity of Bharat, the sources added.
The report added that Kangana and producer Kamal Jain will join hands to bring back the franchise, after 2019’s “Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi”. The actress had a meeting with Jain last week and locked their new script.
Earlier, in September 2020, Ranaut had vowed to make a film on the plight of Kashmiri Pandits, however, was criticised by Kashmiris for taking advantage of the name (Kashmiri Pandits) for her personal gains.
