With the release of Kangana Ranaut's 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi', the controversy that erupted due to Krish walking out of the project came into the limelight once again. While the reasons had been undisclosed before, Krish revealed the whole incident in a tell-all interview. As he revealed how Kangana took credit for direction in spite of him having done most of the work, many names in B-town such as Apurva Asrani, Hansal Mehta, Pooja Bhatt and Bejoy Nambiar shared their thoughts on the matter.
Pooja Bhatt expressed her shock on finding out what had transpired and came out in support of Krish as she said, "This is so wrong... on every level... this is not the industry I was born to and not the industry I wish to inherit. Eventually, it is credit we work for... money comes & money goes... the first rule of filmmaking is to acknowledge people’s contribution."
Bejoy Nambiar who made films like David and Wazir also came out to support the filmmaker and also reminded everyone that a similar episode took place with writer Apurva Asrani during Simran. He said, "This is just heartbreaking to watch! No one should have to go through something like this. After #Simran & @Apurvasrani's episode, this is the 2nd time someone is calling her out. EARN your credit & GIVE credit where it’s due #KanganaRanaut"
And finally, Apurva Asrani himself who has a vicious fallout with Kangana post-Simran had a lot to say about the actress as he sympathised with Krish. The writer started out by saying, "What's going to hurt more brother Krish is that she will run a vicious smear campaign to destroy your credibility. And worse, a large section of the media, esp the pseudo-feminists, will ignore your story like they did when Ketan Mehta & then I claimed she hijacked our films. Sad."
Apurva then continued as he revealed that he was ousted from Simran in a much similar way, "Director #Krish exposes how #KanganRanaut hijacked #Manikarnika. This is exactly what she did on Simran too. Waited for me to complete the cut (minus patchwork), told me how much she loved it, then had me thrown out by colluding with producer-before she went onto screw up the film."
Finally, Hansal Mehta came out to voice his opinion at this time as he chose to remain neutral and simply requested everyone to not drag him into this controversy anymore. From the looks of it, it seems like a big controversy is on the horizon with more people from B-town turning up to support Krish.
