Kangana Ranaut is all set to come back with a BANG on screen to please our senses with Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi and Mental Hai Kya with her Queen co-star Rajkummar Rao. Aside from this, she also will be part of Panga by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. While Manikarnika is one project that she has been long associated with, there was a lot of confusion over its release date with constant changes happening in the release date of the film. Now, there is one more development with this project. A pic of the clapboard from the sets of the film has appeared and it mentions Kangy’s name as the director of the film.
Following this her team took to Insta to clarify this and wrote, “Krish Jagarlamudi is the director of #Manikarnika and will remain so. #KanganaRanaut has stepped in to shoot just the patchwork on his behalf while he fulfils his commitments in another movie, to make sure that #Manikarnika releases on 25th Jan 2019. The clapboard is merely to avoid on set confusion.” Krish Jagarlamudi is currently busy with the NTR biopic.
Kangana’s last few projects did not do too well at the box office and therefore it is really important for her that films at her films work to re-instate his position and make her a credible entity again, trade wise.
