“This Isn’t The Manikarnika We Shot For,” An Actor Spills The Beans

 There is a gigantic level of resentment  in  the  ranks  of  actors and technicians who have  pitched their talent into the  controversial historical  Manikarnika.  While two of the  prominent actors  told this writer they had a  “hellish” time shooting for the film after  the original  director Krish was replaced by the film’s leading lady Kangana Ranaut as director, they also asserted that silence was  the best policy  for now.

They  will speak later after the  film’s release.

One actor from the film did speak up on condition of anonymity asserting that his name be kept out. “If you promise  to  not reveal  my name I can tell you  , shooting for  Manikarnika with Krish and without Krish as  director have been two different experiences. When she(Kangana Ranaut) came in  she changed everything including the  dubbing by the actors.The film that  is now going to release  after she(Kangana) took over  is very different from the one that Krish has made. Now it is trulyManikarnika  because it is truly the story  of one woman now,with all the other characters as  mere props.”

The actor says there are far more senior and respected actors  in  the film who feel they’ve been given a raw deal.  “But we are keeping quiet for  the  sake  of  the  film. We want  it to work because all our blood sweat and tears  has gone into it. But  afterManikarnika releases there will be plenty  of  voices of protest  coming  up.”
