With the release of Kangana Ranaut's 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi', the fight between Krish and the actress has taken the centre stage once again. After a tell-all interview from the 'Gabbar Is Back' director, many in B-town have taken his side and have slammed the actress for taking full credit for direction. Now, CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, who is the dialogue writer as well as the lyricist for the film, has shared his opinion on the matter.
Taking to Twitter, he expressed that Kangana has truly done a brilliant job in the epic historical film. According to Joshi, not only was her performance as Rani Lakshmibai top notch, but he also felt that she elevated the film to a whole new level with her vision as a director. Other than praising her hard work and commitment, he also took a more diplomatic stance in his tweet as he said that controversy or not, nobody can take that away from her but added that he is all for celebrating everybody's contribution.
This statement from the famed lyricist comes at a time when names like Apurva Asrani, Pooja Bhatt and Bejoy Nambiar have taken sides with Krish and feel that he has been wronged. Director Hansal Mehta, who has also witnessed the controversy unfold with his film 'Simran', chose to stay mute on the matter and clarified that he doesn't want to be dragged in any controversy.
