Mumbai: After the film ‘Padmaavat’, it seems that Maharashtra Karni Sena is now against the Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.’
In a letter, addressing the producers, director and the writers of the film, the Karni Sena has warned that if the image of Rani Laxmibai is maligned in the film or if she is shown to be the lover of some Britisher, then the makers will face consequences.
Maharashtra Karni Sena has threatened that if the shooting for the film is not stopped, they will face protests.
The Kangana Ranaut-starrer ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is one of the most highly anticipated films of 2019.
