Manikarnika Release Postponed Indefinitely

With the Karni Sena getting away with the worst possibly bullying to bring SanjayBhansali’s Padmaavat to heel, it was  only a  matter of time before the other historical film in the making  on an Indian warrior queen ,  also gets the brunt of the fringe group’s ire.

Now another  fringe outfit in Rajasthan Sarva Brahman Mahasabha allges  that the KanganaRanaut period drama based  Manikarnika  the bio-pic  on Rani Laxmi Bai, distorts history by depicting a love affair between her and a British man.

While the producers are tightlipped a source  very close  to the project reveals, “This  is  all nonsense.There is no love affair between Laxmibai and  a Britisher. This  allegation  is as bogus as  the one claiming Ranveer and Deepika Padukone shared a song   in  Padmaavat. This fringe outfit is trying to discredit our film after seeing the mileage Padmaavat got  from the Karni protest.”

The  source  reveals that the release  of Manikarnika has been postponed indefinitely. “Not because  of  the protests. But because we are  just not ready.I don’t think we will be ready this year.”
