Director Krish, who accused actor Kangana Ranaut of kidnapping his film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, spoke of the controversy “one last time”. Krish was removed from the film, and Kangana claimed to have re-recorded significant parts of it, for which she received co-director credit.
Krish was asked about the controversy while appearing on Samantha Akkineni’s talk show SamJam. “I really want to speak one last time,” he said.
“After Kangana and her team saw the film, I got a call two days later … As a storyteller, I feared that I would remain unknown to the world. As artists, we can only show the world if we get the right opportunities, ”said Krish.
In a 2019 interview with SpotboyE, Krish had denied Kangana’s claim that she made 70% of the film. “Kangana did 20-25% in the first half and 10-15% in the second half. I didn’t shoot a song and I didn’t shoot their entry scene. In the second half she even re-shot some scenes that I had done in a different way, ”he said.
He continued, “Kangana even told me that Zee Studios didn’t like what I was doing. It looked like a Bhojpuri movie. I laughed. People know my previous work. We argued, but she wanted her own way. I just couldn’t understand. “Kangana was rude on the phone and she” is rude all the time. “

Kangana was accused of similar interference by the writer Apurva Asrani, who accused her of taking over Simran. Director Hansal Mehta called his time in the film a “painful memory” and told the Huffington Post, “I sometimes wish I had never made it. There was no need. It was an unnecessary departure in my career. It makes me sad it could have been a much better movie. It had the potential to be a great movie. It used to make me sad, but now it is … It was a painful time. Every day. In addition, it is difficult to talk about. I don’t even visit it. There was a time after the film was released when I went through a very low mental phase. Took therapy. The movie affected my mental health. I went into a shell, I didn’t want to meet people. I was at a time of very low self-esteem. “
