Kangana Ranaut has a tendency to rub quite a few people the wrong way, but she is a strong minded individual. This feature film has been co-directed by Kangana after Krish pulled out of the project midway citing personal reasons. Krish, in an interview, blasted the ‘Queen’ actress and called her rude. Krish’s barbs against Kangana could be a case of sour grapes and resentment.
The film is based on the valour and sacrifice of Rani Laxmibai and how she fought against the British empire. Kangana Ranaut‘s film received mostly positive reviews from the critics. Kangana Ranaut needed this film to click as her previous films tanked at the box office and ‘Manikarnika’s success will give her a much-needed boost.
