The Karni Sena on Saturday told ‘Manikarnika’ Kangana Ranaut that if she goes on to voice protest against the outfit, they would crush her career prospects and burn her film sets.
This comes a day after Kangana released a statement claiming that she will ruin the Karni Sena if they go on to harass her over the release of ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.’
On Friday, kangna said “Four historians have certified Manikarnika, we have got censor certificate as well, Karni Sena has been conveyed this but they are continuing to harass me. If they don’t stop then they should know I am also a Rajput and I will destroy each one of them,”
Reflecting on Kangana’s report, Ajay Singh Sengar, president of Maharashtra Karni Sena said, “If she returns to threaten the members of our outfit, we will not let her walk freely in Maharashtra and will burn her film sets.”
He also claimed that if the film, in any way, insults the queen of Jhansi, the Hindu society will not forgive her.
Earlier this week, the outfit had reported to producers, director and the writers of ‘Manikarnika’ that if the model of Rani Laxmibai is smeared in the film or if she is shown to be the lover of some British national, the makers of the film will have to “face consequences.”
The Kangana Ranaut-starrer ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is one of the most strikingly anticipated films of 2019.
The period drama is based on the story and struggles of Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi and her war against the British East India Company, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
The film is set to hit the big screens on January 25.
