I couldn’t have asked for a bigger debut and I’m deeply honoured that I could play her on-screen. Her life, her values, her resilience, her courage, her honour is what legends are made of and I’m so fortunate that I got to know so much about her in the process of prepping and portraying princess Sanyogita on screen. I hope I have done justice to her and what she stood for. I’m excited for everyone to see her story.”
Manushi is also thankful for constant support she received from her co-star superstar Akshay Kumar. Appreciating him she says, “I have given my heart, soul and tears to this film and I hope that people will like my effort in playing such an iconic real-life legend on the big screen. I’m immensely grateful that I had Akshay sir as a pillar of support to me all through the shoot. His work ethic, his dedication to the craft is an inspiration to me.”

I hope I can make my family proud with my work and I’m looking forward to their reaction when they get to see my film,” she quipped.
