Director Krish, who accused actor Kangana Ranaut of hijacking his film, Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi, spoke “for the last time” about the controversy. Krish was removed from the film, and Kangana claimed to have found significant portions of it, for which he received a co-director credit.
In an appearance on the Samantha Akkineni talk show, SamJam, Krish was asked about the controversy. “I really want to talk for the last time,” he said.
“After Kangana and her team watched the film, I received a phone call two days later … As a storyteller, I was afraid that I would remain unknown to the world. As artists, we can only show it to the world when we have the right opportunities, ”said Krish.
In an interview with SpotboyE in 2019, Krish challenged Kangana’s claim that he shot 70% of the film. “Kangana made 20-25% in the first half and 10-15% in the second half. I didn’t film a song and I didn’t film the entrance scene. In the second half, she even redistributed a few scenes that I had done in a different way, “he had said.
