As the news of Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming historical drama Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi hurting sentiments of the Sarva Brahman Mahasabha — for allegedly distorting historical facts — surfaced in the news headlines, it seemed like a premonition of a second anti-Padmaavat (like) wave.

According to CNN News18 TV reports, the Krish-directed film has irked the members of the Sarva Brahman Mahasabha, who demanded the makers to share complete details of the film’s story to rule out any tampering with facts.

However, the makers of Manikarnika, in response to the claims of Mahasabha, said the movie neither distorts historical facts nor does it portray anything objectionable.

Kamal Jain, the film’s producer, said in a statement: “As responsible filmmakers, we have taken utmost care while portraying Rani Laxmibai’s character and have consulted historians and scholars. Rani Laxmibai was a freedom fighter and one of the most respected leaders our country has seen. She is a symbol of valour and the film’s story depicts the same.”

He continued, “The film doesn’t portray anything objectionable about Rani Laxmibai and nor has the film distorted the history in anyway. The film showcases Rani Laxmibai in a most respectful manner and is an inspirational story which every kid and every member of a family would love to see. We as country would be proud to showcase the bravery, courage and heroism of Rani Laxmibai to the world.”

The makers have said they are open to sharing the script with “authorised persons” who have any “doubts” about the movie, which is a tribute to Rani Laxmibai.
