Zee TV unravels its new show 'Ek Veer Stree ki Kahaani… Jhansi Ki Rani' - the story of an ordinary girl who went on to become an extraordinary ruler. Her defiance against the British is exemplary even today. The fervour that she aroused gave birth to various leaders and revolutionaries who finally freed our nation from the British. Through this venture, Zee TV attempts to bring forth the various facets of this remarkable woman which are yet unknown to people. The Rani is shown as a mother, as a wife, as a daughter, as a warrior and essays all the roles with equal aplomb. The show is a tribute to her bravery, gallantry and patriotism. Born as Manikarnika, Lakshmi Bai, also known as 'Manu' was the daughter of a Maharashtrian Brahmin Moropant Tambey from Varanasi. While the other girls of her age chose to do household chores, she played and defeated the local boys in muddy matches of kabaddi. She married Gangadhar Rao, who was the Raja of Jhansi, at a very tender age. It was after her husband's untimely demise, while she was still an adolescent that the agile Rani became a true warrior and an epitome of women's power in the country. In this historical tale, Zee TV attempts to portray how an ordinary woman became an extraordinary exponent of Indian freedom movement.
