Manikarnika was born in Varanasi in 1828 into a family of Maharashtrian Brahmins. She took the name of Lakshmi Bai after trying the knot with Jhansi king Raja Gangadhar Rao Newalkar. The king died without a biological heir but the couple adopted a 6-year old boy from his extended family a few weeks prior to his death.
Rani Lakshmibai was a fierce warrior and turned out to be one of the leading figures of the 1st war of independence of 1857. Some fans also shared pictures off all actors who have portrayed Rani Lkashmibai on screen.
