The Queen of Jhansi
Movie Connection(s):
Kangana had directed some of the scenes in the movies herself which makes 'Manikarnika' her directorial debut, as both Krish and Kangana shared the directorial credit.

Kangana Ranaut insisted on removing actor Sonu Sood and he was replaced by actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, which forced the team to re-shoot his portions.

Kangana Ranaut was accused of editing out major parts of many actors which were shot by director Krrish including part of Atul Kulkarni. But actress Ankita Lokande had denied the accusations.

Director Kirsh quit the film midway to direct the NTR biopic, as he had a fallout with Kangana.
