Bollywood queen Kangana Ranaut is essaying the title role as Rani Laxmibhai in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Sensible director Krish is the director and he walked out of the project during the final days of shoot. The film landed into a bunch of controversies and the budget came up, the release date got delayed. Finally, the entire shoot of Manikarnika has been wrapped up recently.
The post-production work of Manikarnika is on currently.
The film landed into one more controversy after Federation of Western India Cine Employees alleged that the dues of Rs 1.5 crores are left unpaid for the junior artists and other workers. A complaint has been registered and the issue is yet to be resolved. Zee Studios produced Manikarnika and the film has been announced for January 2019 release. We have to wait to see if the issue gets resolved at the earliest.
