The 16-year-old Anushka will trace the journey of the Rani of Jhansi in the upcoming Colors' show "Khoob Ladi Mardaani - Jhansi Ki Rani"
Honoured to be a part of the show, Anushka said in a statement: "Jhansi Ki Rani is such prominent name in our nation's history. She is a warrior that every girl can only aim to become.
"It's an honour to get a chance to play a queen who fought many stereotypes and changed the reality of Jhansi. She showed Britishers what Indian women are made and their power to fight against all odds."
