Another such untold heroic story is that of the Queen of Kashmir, who defeated Mahmud Ghaznavi not once but twice. @KamalJain_TheKJ and me are coming up with #ManikarnikaReturns : The Legend of Didda)", the actor tweeted.

Sources close to the development told IANS that the new film will be made on a much larger scale. Kangana Ranaut and producer Kamal Jain have teamed up to bring back the franchise after 2019's Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.

Didda was the Queen of Kashmir who defeated Mehmood Ghaznavi twice in battle. Polio did not break Didda's spirit and she went on to become one of the greatest warriors.
