Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi focuses on Rani Laxmibai's fight against British colonisers for the rightful independence of her country and land. The Kangana Ranaut-fronted historical film also stars Atul Kulkarni, Jisshu Sengupta, Suresh Oberoi, Ankita Lokhande, Danny Denzongpa among others. KV Vijayendra Prasad, screenwriter of blockbusters like Baahubali franchise has penned the script of Manikarnika.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui's biopic on the Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray, on the other hand, scored well in Maharashtra specifically. Thackeray has earned Rs 6 crore on its opening day, and is expected to witness a growth in its collections over the Republic Day weekend.
