Meanwhile, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is in the eye of a storm. The Karni Sena has objected to a scene in the period drama, which allegedly shows an affair between Rani Laxmibai and a British officer. They also have problems with a scene where the queen is seen dancing.
The outfit has threatened to vandalise theatres and property if Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi opens in theatres without getting approval from them first.
However, Kangana has refused to bow down to the Karni Sena. “Four historians have certified Manikarnika, we have got censor certificate as well, Karni Sena has been conveyed this but they are continuing to harass me. If they don’t stop, then they should know I am also a Rajput and I will destroy each one of them,” she told an entertainment website.
Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, which marks the big screen debut of television actress Ankita Lokhande, will release on January 25.
