Kangana threatens to destroy Karni Sena over objections to film

January 21, 2019

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is geared up for her upcoming movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi that is all set to release next Friday. But right wing group Karni Sena are already up in arms against the movie that shows the life of Rani Laxmi Bai. The actress and makers of the movie said that they are being harassed by members of Karni Sena. In a recent statement, the actress said that she is going to destroy each one of them if they keep harassing her. She added that she is a Rajput and is not going to tolerate the harassment against her.

Most of the social media users supported Kangana's statements and wished her good luck before the release of her movie.

Well Said #KanganaRanaut best replied and yes she is right because of the karni sena always put and throwing issue but when film will not to be realised it how can they protests against this and blaming, fuck of man, Shame on you #KarniSena #Manikarnika all the best-Mohammad Ullah Adnan, Twitter User

The Maharashtra wing of Karni Sena said that Manikarnika allegedly tarnishes the image of Rani Laxi Bai by showing her having an affair with a British man. Rani Laxmi Bai's real name was Manikarnika. She was born to a Marathi family before moving to Jhansi after marrying their ruler.

President Ramnath Kovind has watched Manikarnika at a special screening at Rashtrapathi Bhavan at New Delhi on Friday. The cast of the movie was also felicitated at an event after the screening.

The movie has got a certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification and has been cleared by four historians, who watched the movie. But the Karni Sena wants its release postponed. This was the case with Deepika Padukone-starrer Padmavat as well last year, when the Sena alleged the film maligned the image of Rajputs. They even threatened to kill Deepika Padukone.

"One thing which is heroic here, is #KanganaRanaut's bold attitude. She is not hiding behind controversy like #Padmaavat starcast was hiding. She is coming up and speaking up! She is not afraid of Karni Sena goons", tweeted Khushboo, a fan of Kangana.
