Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is the dream project of Kangana Ranaut. The movie is a historical film based on the life of the queen of Jhansi. It marks the directorial debut of popular South Indian director Krish. The movie is being produced by Zee Studios.
The movie is currently shooting, which started in May this year. One shocking news of the film is that there is no male actor opposite Kangana in the movie.
According to the reports, no mainstream male actor wants to work with Kangana after her ugly battle with Hrithik Roshan. There is even a cold war between Shahid Kapoor and Kangana after Rangoon.
During the promotion of Rangoon, Kangana had said that it is hard to kiss Shahid in his thick mustache look in the movie. When asked to comment on the same, Shahid Kapoor said to entertainment outlet Filmfare, ” Kangana has a thing for one-liners. I’m not one of those. I’d rather focus on the movie. I like positivity. We shared a professional equation. So, I was also surprised by the comments. I also read some retractions she made later that she didn’t mean it in a bad way. “
Kangana Ranaut is one of the best actress working in the industry, but she definitely has a thing of controversy. During the promotional tour of her last film Simran, Kangana gave an explosive interview to Rajat Sharma, which created a huge controversy. The actress opened up about her past relationship and all. In the interview, she talked about her relationship with Aditya Pancholi. The actress claimed that he had put her under house arrest for some time and that his wife Zarina Wahab was aware of his affair. Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab reacted on the allegation by filing a defamation case against the actress.
This is not it, folks! Kangana has also been involved in a cold war with popular filmmaker Karan Johar. It all started when Kangana called him “the flag bearer of nepotism” while appearing on his show Koffee With Karan. This created a huge controversy in the film industry. Kangana got support from of some of them. But lots of them have completely different views than her.
These things may be the reason, as to why no male actors are ready to work with Kangana in her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi. We will hope that the issue gets resolved pretty soon and it doesn’t affect the quality and performance of the movie.
