Manikarnika: Kangana Ranaut says she'd 'destroy' Karni Sena if they continue to 'harass' her

A week before Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi hits the theatres, Shri Rajput Karni Sena has issued a letter to the producers, director and the writers, protesting against the film for allegedly distorting history and alluding to a relationship between a British officer and Rani Laxmibai. They have also reportedly threatened to protest against the release of the film. Now, Kangana Ranaut, who will essay the role of Rani Laxmibai in Manikarnika, has responded to the "harassment" by the Karni Sena, and she would "destroy" the protesters.

"Four historians have certified Manikarnika. We have got censor certificate as well. Karni Sena has been conveyed this but they are continuing to harass me. If they don’t stop then they should know I am also a Rajput and I will destroy each one of them," Kangana said in a statement, as per in.com

According to ANI, the Maharashtra wing of Karni Sena said that if the "image of Rani Laxmi Bai is maligned in the film or if she is shown to be the lover of some Britisher, then the makers will face consequences."

The national head of Karni Sena, Sukhdev Singh Shekhavat, spoke about the row with Mid-Day. "Time and again, we have seen that filmmakers try to take liberties by showing certain scenes (with the purpose of titillating). We won't tolerate such nonsense." Last year, the outfit had protested against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
