Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut is set to return with the second installment of the Manikarnika franchise.

Titled Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda, the film will revolve around the life of Didda, Kashmir’s first woman ruler, sometimes described as the “Cleopatra of Kashmir”. Didda ruled Kashmir directly and indirectly for around five decades in the 10th and 11th centuries.

According to sources close to the development, Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda will be mounted on an international scale. The movie will be jointly produced by Kangana and Kamal Jain, who bankrolled the first installment, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi (2019).
