New Delhi: Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is all set to hit the silver screens next week. Ahead of the release, the makers have received a warning from Maharashtara Karni Sena that they will face consequences if the period drama maligns the image of Rani Laxmibai. The fringe group had earlier opposed the release of Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Padmaavat’. Kangana, who plays the titular role in the much-awaited film, has strongly reacted to the protests and said that she isn’t scared.
The ‘Queen’ actress, while talking to an entertainment portal, said that the film has got censor certificate from CFBC and four historians have certified the film. The National Award winning actress also said that if the fringe group doesn’t stop harassing her, she will destroy them.
“Four historians have certified Manikarnika, we have got censor certificate as well, Karni Sena has been conveyed this but they are continuing to harass me if they don’t stop then they should know I am also a Rajput and I will destroy each one of them,” Kangana told Pinkvilla.
‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi’ has been jointly directed by Krish and Kangana. The film also stars Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni, Vaibhav Tatwawaadi, Danny Denzongappa, Suresh Oberoi and Jisshu Sengupta in key roles.
Manikarika will release along with Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer ‘Thackeray’ on January 25.
