Kangana Ranaut has a bunch of films in her kitty from Manikarnika to Mental Hai Kya to Ashwiny Iyer’s Panga.
And the most awaited from this most-awaited lot is Manikarnika, one project that she has been long associated with, and done project that had a lot of confusion over its release date. Now, there is one more development with this project. A pic of the clapboard from the sets of the film has appeared and it mentions Kangana’s name as the director of the film.
Following this her team took to Insta to clarify this and wrote, “Krish Jagarlamudi is the director of #Manikarnika and will remain so. #KanganaRanaut has stepped in to shoot just the patchwork on his behalf while he fulfils his commitments in another movie, to make sure that #Manikarnika releases on 25th Jan 2019. The clapboard is merely to avoid on set confusion.” Krish Jagarlamudi is currently busy with the NTR biopic.
Kangana Ranaut’s team also gave a formal statement with this regard to media that said, “Krish Jagarlamudi is director of #Manikarnika & will remain so. He’s currently fulfilling his unavoidable commitments with another project and so #KanganaRanaut has stepped in to shoot patchwork on his behalf. The team of Manikarnika wants the movie to release on 25th January 2019 and to make sure that happens Kangana had to step in to do the patchwork, which she is doing very dedicatedly. There is no truth in rumors of miff between Kangana and Krish. The clapboard is used only to avoid any confusion on the sets for the crew members. In Hollywood it is a common practice for actors to also step in the shoes of director if the situation demands. For example, in the hit series Friends 10 episodes were directed by David Schwimmer who played Ross, despite the original director James Burrows being present.”
