You might be aware that Essel Vision is producing a movie on Rani Laxmibai named Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi. With reference to the history, it is noted that the producer and writers of the movie are using a wrong birth year of Rani Laxmibai. This was experienced recently during a press conference in Varanasi. The producers had mentioned her birth year as 1828. Almost all the news papers and channels carried 1828 as per the producers claimed, but as per the government records, the birth year is 1835.
The memorial at her birth place in Varanasi and the statue in Pune mentions the birth year as 1835. When Advocate Vivek Tambe claimed to be her descendant requested to make corrections in the birth year the company officials flatly denied and are said to be carrying the wrong birth year. Here are the references for the same. But will the makers change the date, remains a question.
