Finally, director Krish Jagarlamudi opens up on his differences with Kangana Ranaut that led to his walking out of Manikarnika. The biopic on Jhansi Rani Lakshmi Bai is running successfully in theaters having released for Republic Day.
The film collected nearly 26 crores in two days. Krish walked out of the project midway and moved on to NTR biopic starring Balakrishna. Kangana had to complete the film donning director’s hat. In his recent interview, Krish said that Kangana wanted to kill Sonu Sood’s character which is against history.
Moreover, she is said to have ridiculed Krish’s work comparing it to a Bhojpuri Movie. Upset with her tantrums, Krish left the project. Sonu Sood too followed Krish. Kangana’s compelling performance as warrior queen Manikarnika is winning audience hearts.
