Bollywood’s queen Kangana Ranaut’s directorial debut ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ has been roaring at the box office window. Kangana took the responsibility of directing the movie upon herself when director Krish left the film midway for another movie.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Kangana had stated how she had directed 70 per cent of Manikarnika and had to reshoot various scenes. On this, Krish lashed out at Kangana Ranaut’s claims to have directed 70 percent of the film. He said that in the first half of the film, only 20-25 percent was filmed by Kangana while in the second half, she shot only 10 percent.
Lambasting Krish, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli, who is an avid social media user said Krish should let her sister enjoy the moment of ‘Manikarnika’s success.
