Kangana Ranaut will not take things lying down if it comes in between the release of her ambitious project, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi. After Padmaavat, Karni Sena is out to hamper the release of this period drama. But Kangana is in no mood to bow down to their threats.

While talking to Pinkvilla about the protests by the fringe group, Kangana has bravely challenged Karni Sena and 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.”

Now, that’s talking like a real Queen! According to Karni Sena, the makers have shown Rani Laxmibai's relationship with a British officer in the film. The Rajput group also claims that Manikarnika shows Rani Laxmibai dancing on a special number which is against their tradition. When Mid-Day got in touch with national head of the Karni Sena, Sukhdev Singh Shekhavat, he said, "Time and again, we have seen that filmmakers try to take liberties by showing certain scenes [with the purpose of] adding titillation. We won't tolerate such nonsense." When they were asked about why they waited till the last minute, he said, “We had raised concerns in February last year. Despite the Supreme Court judgement, we didn't allow Padmaavat to release in many states. Manikarnika will face the same consequence. We have requested the producers to show us the film before its release. If they release it [without showing it to us], we will damage property [theatres, here] and won't be liable for it."
