Kangna Ranaut, who has dedicated an immense amount of time and effort to ‘Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi’, will now be credited as co-director of the film, along with Krish.
Krish left the project around September due to creative differences with Ranaut, resulting in her taking over as director. According to a source, “Kangna helmed the 45-day schedule that included the re-shoot of several key parts of the drama. Not just that, after she returned from the US earlier this week, she was thoroughly involved in the editing process along with Rameshwar Bhagat. She is overseeing the VFX work, the music and the final cut as well, all of which are the director’s responsibilities. Kangana also cut short the first schedule of ‘Panga’ to accommodate the post-production of ‘Manikarnika’.”, Mid-Day reported.
Producer Kamal Jain officially confirmed the news, saying that, “The film is finally looking exactly the way we had envisioned it. Kangna is a perfectionist who headlined every department. We are happy with what she has done and it would be unfair to not give her credit where it’s due.”
‘Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi’ will release on 25th January, 2019.
