Court refuses to stay release of 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi'
January 25, 2019
Kangana Ranaut's movie 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi' is coming out today, as Bombay High Court has rejected a plea seeking a stay on its release.
The court has rejected a petition that was filed by a lawyer asking the court to put a ban on the release of the film. The lawyer named Vivek Tambe had claimed that he is the fifth generation descendant of Rani Lakshmi Bai.
In his petition, Vivek Tambe had said that the makers had depicted some historical facts related to Rani Lakshmi Bai incorrectly.
He claims that Rani Lakshmi Bai was born in the year 1835 while the movie shows the birth year to be 1828. He also raised objections to a scene in the film that showed that the Indian queen had suffered a miscarriage.
Responding to the petition in court, the makers said that the birth year of Rani Lakshmi Bai has been provided by historians and there is no miscarriage related scene in the movie.
The court heard the arguments and declined to stay the release of the film. This is a huge relief for the makers as the movie is all set to hit the theatres today.
Fans of Kangana are happy and excited about the movie.
