In a video that has surfaced on social media, we see the members of the outfit raising slogans while being taken away by the police officials in police vans. 

The security has been beefed up at the actress' residence following the protests.

The controversy between the actress and the outfit was sparked after Maharashtra Karni Sena warned Kangana and the makers of her next movie ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ of ‘consequences’ if the image of the 1857 freedom movement warrior Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi, on whom the movie is based, is maligned or if she is shown as a lover of a British officer. 

Kangana had responded by stating she is a Rajput and will ‘destroy each one of them’ if the group harasses her regarding the movie.  

The actress, who made an appearance at an event later in the day, refused to apologise for her statements again by asserting that they is no incorrect portrayal of the queen, who is not her ‘relative’ but the ‘daughter of the entire country.’ The ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ star concluded by asking Karni Sena not to ‘play their ego card’ with her. 

 “I will not apologize to anybody. I have never apologized whenever I haven’t made a mistake. We have promised that we haven’t shown anything wrong about Rani Lakshmibai  in the film so, they should support us. Rani Lakshmibai is not my relative and I feel she is daughter of the entire country so, we all should support the film. Shri Rajput Karni Sena should not play their ego card with me because I am not here to say sorry to anyone.”
