Soon after Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi producer Kamal Jain tweeted about being hospitalised, speculations are rife about his deteriorating health with reports claiming that he is suffering from a paralytic stroke. Many also suggested that he is on ventilator.

However, to put an end to rumours, Kangana Ranaut, who is playing the titular role, spoke to Times Now,"He is doing fine. The reports are misleading. He fell sick last week and is on his way to recovery. I am in touch with him everyday. Request everyone to please stop backing sensational reports."

A report from Times of India also clarifies that Jain is hospitalised not owing to a paralytic stroke, but a throat and lung infection. Speculations about his condition began after his post on Twitter:

Days ahead of its release, the film is stuck in a web of controversies. Reportedly, Karni Sena's Maharashtra wing has raised objections against the period drama on Thursday, stating that they find allusions to Rani Lakshmibai's relationship with a British officer and the depiction of the queen dancing to a special number which was unbecoming of royalty to do. In a retort, Kangana said if such political outfits threatened her, she would 'destroy' them.

Manikarnika will be released in Tamil, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. It also stars Ankita Lokhande, Jisshu Sengupta, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Danny Denzongpaha. It is slated to release on 25 January.  The epic periodic drama is a biopic on the life of Rani Laxmibai, who had led the Indian freedom rebellion of 1857 against the East India Company.
