Kangana Ranaut on Manikarnika controversy: Fringe group is defaming Rani Laxmibai

After having faced opposition from a religious group in Rajasthan claiming the misrepresentation of facts of Rani Laxmibai, the writer of MANIKARNIKA: THE QUEEN OF JHANSI, Mr. Vijayendra Prasad has come forward and clarified the same.

"This movie is sure to instill a feeling of pride among the people", she added.

"JAIPUR-Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on February 8 said there was nothing controversial in her upcoming movie 'Manikarnika", adding that the controversy is being created just for the simple reason that a few people want to get famous. However, they cleared the air saying that the movie neither distorts historical facts nor does it portray anything objectionable. It is idle talk and I don't know why it is being said.


In a recent interaction, Kangana addressed the growing controversy about Manikarnika. "The film's title is Manikarnika, because it is her name". "We are making Manikarnika with a great passion and huge respect towards the great woman who is unmatchable in her reputation", Jain said. "She is a symbol of valor and the film's story depicts the same". "We have not referred the (sic) Jayshree Mishra or any other writes who wrote degrading history in Lakshmi Bai", the letter reads.

The makers of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi on Thursday said the film's release date is yet to be announced. "After they gave us a written assurance to this effect, we have chose to withdraw our protest".

They have said that the biopic on the valiant Rani Laxmibai has no objectionable substance in it. Producer of the film Kamal Jain said, "The film doesn't portray anything objectionable about Rani Laxmibai and nor has the film distorted the history in anyway".
