The release of Kangana Ranaut's long-awaited 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi' has been bittersweet. While the film has tasted success at the box-office, it has not been without its fair share of controversies. Especially with the co-director of the film, Krish accusing Kangana of taking up all the credit. Not just that, actors like Sonu Sood and Mishti Chakravarty have spoken against the actress. Writer Apurva Asrani, who had differences of his own with Kangana in 2017, had also lent his support to Krish.


Now, Kangana has finally broken her silence and has opened up about the whole issue and controversy. She came back from Geneva today and while walking towards her car at the airport, spoke to a media portal. She was asked about the accusations levelled against her by Krish, writer Apurva Asrani, actors Sonu Sood and Mishti Chakravarty. To this, Kangana slammed all four of them and said that it is wrong of Krish to attack her like this. If he is right, Kangana asked him to go ahead and prove it. She said that talking to the media won’t help him. To all those people who are saying that their roles have been cut or she has edited a scene, Kangana said that whatever place she has achieved in the industry, whether as an actor or 3 times National award winner or filmmaker, she has got it herself and her father hasn’t given it to her. Kangana suggested that they get this position on their own and crying won’t help anyone.



She further added that she has taken all the final decisions. If Krish left the film in her hands, then it was her prerogative as a director to take the final calls. Kangana asked those taking shots at her should take inspiration from her as they won’t get anything by feeling jealous or by attacking her. She also spoke at length about her hard work and expressed that she started with only a 5-minute sequence and then slowly grew in the film industry. She added in the end and laughed that she would suggest Krish to take Sonu Sood, Mishti Chakravarty and Apurva Asrani and make a film to teach her a lesson.
