#Manikarnika is an appalling, ghastly, and a catastrophe of a movie. It is a murder of history! I just cannot believe that one could make such an obscenely bad movie in this day and age when information is so easily available. This movie will easily sit among the worst ever made. pic.twitter.com/qKKTKWZ6P4

‘Manikarnika’ garnered Rs. 8.75 crores on the first day while it earned Rs. 18.10 crore on Saturday, and went on to collect Rs 15.70 crores on Sunday. The film minted Rs. 5.10 crores on Monday and Rs. 4.75 crores on Tuesday, paving its way into the Rs. 50 crore club.

As per Bollywood news, Kangana has torn her own record as her earlier blockbuster ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ had collected Rs 37.50 crores over its first weekend. At the time of its release, it was the biggest first-weekend collections for a female-centric film.
‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is a period drama relied on the life and battles of Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi and her war against the British East India Company, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
Apart from Kangana Ranaut, the film also features Ankita Lokhande, Suresh Oberoi, Atul Kulkarni, Jisshu Sengupta, and Danny Denzongpa in pivotal roles.
