Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel has lashed out against director Krish on social media after he claimed that 'Manikarnika' is 'his baby' stating that he is a mere opportunist who is trying to claim the success of the film. Speaking to news agency PTI, the director had said 'At the end of the day it is my baby... I am relieved that the grandeur vision and scale that I imagined for the film remains intact." In a series of fresh tweets on Wednesday, Rangoli said that Krish "did everything to ruin the film," did not take anyone's calls and also refused to watch the film's final cut'.
In a series of tweets, Rangoli claimed that Krish has done everything in order to ruin the film, and did not let even the assistant director from the previous team work with Kangana Ranaut. 'He did everything to ruin the film, took film’s DOP away, didn’t let any of AD’s from previous team to work with her, he didn’t support anyone in the team and now he is saying Manikarnika is his baby.' read an excerpt from her post.
She further alleged that from Day1, Kangana Ranaut has fought for Krish's credit, while all he is trying to do is defame her by speaking ill about her and the film in the media.
Rangoli also tweeted screenshots of messages Kangana sent to Krish requesting him to watch the final cut and decide the fairness of the deal.
'Manikarnika' was one of the most anticipated films of 2019, and the period drama is based on the life and struggles of Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi and her war against the British East India Company, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
Apart from Kangana Ranaut and Ankita Lokhande, the film also stars Atul Kulkarni, Suresh Oberoi, Danny Demzongpa and Jisshu Sengupta in pivotal roles.
