Rumours about the status of the film 'Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi' have been doing the rounds. And clearing all speculation and rumours, producer Kamal Jain says, “the additional shoot of the film is currently underway at ND Studios at Karjat, near Mumbai."
He further added, "After the last schedule was over, we saw the line up of the film. On seeing it, we decided that apart from the patchwork, we also needed a few additional scenes. Once the scenes were written, we approached Kangana for additional dates. But Krish had moved on to his next project by then. Given how driven and creatively involved Kangana Ranaut has been on this project since its inception, we realised she would be the best person to take over the mantle. Hence, there is no hijacking of the project, whatever decisions are being taken are with the full support of the producer and the studio. We have an aggressive production schedule ahead of us since we are committed to release the film on January 25th 2019."
Commenting on the controversy surrounding actor Sonu Sood issue, he further said, “While we managed to get matching dates from Danny Denzongpa, Jishu Sengupta, Ankita Lokhande and others, we got stuck on Sonu Sood’s combination dates and continuity look as he has grown a beard for Simba. Hence, we had to let him go, Zeeshan Ayub now plays the character of Sadashiv”.
The shooting so far is going smoothly. Nick Powell is also on set designing some mind-blowing action shots to complement what has already been shot earlier. The actress was last seen in 'Simran' which didn't receive a great response from the audience now is loaded with work. Along with the period drama, Kangana has 'Mental Hai Kya' in the pipeline. She will be seen sharing screen space with her 'Queen' co-star Rajkummar Rao for the second time.
