Kangana Ranaut dismisses rumours over romantic sequence in Manikarnika

Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi has become the latest film, after Padmaavat, to land in controversy over alleged distortion of historical facts. She clarified, "There is no love angle in the film". She is a warrior who fought against the British.

Vijayendra assures that no scene in the film has been written to degrade Rani Laxmibai.

Moreover, this was said after Brahmin outfit Sarva Brahman Mahasabha demanded the makers to share complete details of the film's story to rule out any tampering with facts.

"We are making the film, Manikarnika with a great passion and huge respect towards the great woman who is unmatchable in her reputation", Jain's response to Mishra read.




Kangana asserted that Rani Laxmibai is the "daughter of India" and the movie only contains sequences that will bring pride and glory to her stature rather than shame. He also stated that one would be proud of the iconic leader after watching the role of Rani Laxmibai in the film.

Whether genuine or not we do not know, but Bollywood movie 'Manikarnika' penned by writer Vijayendra Prasad is getting into a new controversy and this time it is a religious fringe outfit claiming that some objectionable scenes are being pictured on Jhansi Lakshmi Bai played by Kangana Ranaut. In response to the notice the producer informed that books by several historians have been referred while scripting the movie. "She is a symbol of valor and the film's story depicts the same".

It is being directed by Krish and produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain.

Well, the film was supposed to release in April 2018, but the VFX work postponed the release date till 3rd August, however, now the film will not release on this date also.
