Another fringe group rises against Manikarnika


The latest actress who has faced the brunt of this is Kangana Ranaut, whose upcoming period film, Manikarnika, is being accused of distorting historical facts by allegedly displaying a romantic sequence between Rani Laxmibai and a British officer.

Earlier on Friday, Kangana Ranaut, who plays the role of Rani Lakshmibai in the film, lambasted the controversy around the film saying that certain individuals and groups just want to get famous and hence they are creating the hullabaloo. Reportedly, what they are saying is actually defaming.

In a recent interaction, Kangana addressed the growing controversy about Manikarnika.

There is no love story angle in the film, the Bollywood actor said. "She is a symbol of valour and the film's story depicts the same". "We had written a letter to the filmmakers around 15 days back asking for clarification on the issue".

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". Mr Jain, who met with the Mahasabha's chairperson Suresh Mishra in Jaipur, said he held a detailed discussion over the film. "After they gave us a written assurance to this effect, we have made a decision to withdraw our protest". It is scheduled to hit the big screen on April 27, 2018.
