Ankita Lokhande Supports Kangana Ranaut, Says, “I’m Really Guarding My Rani Laxmibai”
This morning, we ran a story on how Kangana Ranaut gave it back to Manikarnika original director Krish, actors Sonu Sood, Mishti Chakravarty, and Simran writer Apurva Asrani for placing accusations against her. She had said, "It is wrong of Krish to attack me like that. If he is right, then he can go ahead and prove it. Talking to the media won’t help him. Manikarnika is out and fortunately or unfortunately, I have directed the film. The film is out there and nothing can be done about it. To all those people who are saying that my role has been cut or I have edited a scene, I would like to say that whatever place I have achieved, whether as an actor or 3 times National award winner or filmmaker, I have got it myself and my father hasn’t given it to me. Get this position on your own and by crying, it won’t help anyone.”

Now, another actress from her film has walked up in support of Kangana. Ankita Lokhande, who made her big screen debut with this project, portrayed the character of Jhalkaribai in  Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Talking to IANS, Ankita said, "I don't really think I need to react on it. I am in a happy phase and that's how I am. We all have done hard work towards this film. Sometimes it is okay that results don't come out the way you expect them to, and I am not saying this just because I am getting praises. But even if it would have happened to me, I would have been positive. This is my debut film. I understand as an actor... I don't know, they may be going through something or they must be feeling something. I have always been positive about things".

She also added, "I have loved 'Manikarnika' and I have loved Kangana for what she is. Most of my scenes have been shot by her, and that's for sure. I respect her for that. I think I am becoming Jhalkaribai, and I am really guarding my Rani Laxmibai, because she is Rani Laxmibai... She has proved herself. I am playing my character here also in my real life. I am actually protecting Rani Laxmibai," Ankita said, asserting that she stands by Kangana amidst all the brouhaha.

For those unaware, it all started with Krish demanding first credits as the director and claiming that she snatched away his due work. The war of words between them continues until today and we really don’t know when this will come to an end.
