The highly anticipated biographical film is based on the life of the queen of the princely state of Jhansi, Rani Laxmi Bai and her war against the British East India Company during the Indian Rebellion of 1857. The Kangana Ranaut-starrer, which has been in the news ever since the announcement of the film, will see Nihaar essay the role of Baji Rao the second (II) in the film.
