Kangana Ranaut, who is all set for her forthcoming film Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi, has landed herself in a feud with Shri Rajput Karni Sena after making a statement against them. The actress had earlier claimed the outfit had been harassing her and that she would “destroy them” if it did not stop.
The Karni Sena is reportedly opposed to Manikarnika because the film apparently shows Kangana’s character Rani Laxmi Bai dancing to a song, which the group says is against traditions.
Following Kangana’s statement, Karni Sena claimed that they were not involved in the protests against the film and demanded an apology from the actress for making the statement.
On Wednesday, during the launch of Amrapali X Manikarnika jewellery collection, the Queen actress made it clear that she wouldn’t apologise for her statement.
“I will not apologise to anybody. I have never apologised when I haven’t made a mistake. We have promised that we haven’t shown anything wrong about Rani Laxmibai in the film so they should support us,” she said.
“Rani Laxmibai is not my relative and I feel she is daughter of the entire country so, we all should support the film. Shri Rajput Karni Sena should not play their ego card with me because I am not here to say sorry to anyone,” Kangana added.
The historical film, Manikarnika is based on the life of Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi. Directed by Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi and Kangana Ranaut, the film also stars Atul Kulkarni, Ankita Lokhande, Mishti, Jisshu Sengupta, Suresh Oberoi, Danny Denzongpa and Kulbhushan Kharbanda in pivotal roles.
The film is scheduled to be released on January 25.
