Read Rangoli’s tweet:
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi fared well at the box office upon its release on January 25 and impressed critics too. The film, though, involved itself in controversy ever since Krish, who was directing the project, opted out of it midway. Kangana, who plays the titular role in the film, stepped into Krish’s shoes as the director after he departed the project due to what has been blamed on scheduling conflicts and creative differences.

The fiasco ensued after Krish’s comments over the actress taking credits as the primary director of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
