Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi has been in headlines for a lot of controversies and seems like the film has yet again landed in troubled waters. On Thursday, Karni Sena protested against the release of the film. They have issues with Rani Laxmibai's relationship with a British officer. They also claimed that the film shows the queen dancing to a special number, which is against their tradition. Remember, how last year, Karni Sena had protested against the release of Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor’s Padmaavat. Well, this year, Karni Sena has issues with Manikarnika. 

 

Sukhdev Singh Shekhavat, National Head of the Karni Sena told Mid-Day, "Time and again, we have seen that filmmakers try to take liberties by showing certain scenes [with the purpose of] adding titillation. We won't tolerate such nonsense." The movie is almost on the verge of release and has been in the making for the longest time. When asked why did Karni Sena wait for this long to raise an objection, Sukhdev said, “We had raised concerns in February last year. Despite the Supreme Court judgment, we didn't allow Padmaavat to release in many states. Manikarnika will face the same consequence. We have requested the producers to show us the film before its release. If they release it [without showing it to us], we will damage property [theatres, here] and won't be liable for it.” 

 

 

CBFC has already given a clearance to the film. On this, Sukhdev said it doesn't matter if the CBFC has cleared the film and they should have a historian on the board to check the facts. Zee Studio’s spokesperson denied the allegations that any affair is shown. He told the tabloid, “There is no affair shown in the film. Once the film releases on January 25, it will be clear. Manikarnika portrays Rani Laxmibai's strength and bravery as she fought for her motherland. We are proud to present this film, and are confident that it will resonate across age groups.” 

 

Manikarnika will trace the journey of Rani Laxmibai's fight against the British colonizers for the independence of her country and land. The film also stars Jisshu Sengupta, Suresh Oberoi, Atul Kulkarni and Ankita Lokhande. Kangana Ranaut plays the role of Rani Laxmibai in the film. The trailer is already out and fans are eager to see Kangana nail this role. The actor took tremendous efforts for putting out the character of Rani Jhansi on the big screen.
