"Jain has convinced us that the film will stick to the historical facts and bring out the best of the character of Jhansi Ki Rani". Kangana, who is in the city to shoot for the film, said the crew is hurt by such allegations. What they are saying is actually defaming.

"The film doesn't portray anything objectionable about Rani Laxmibai and nor has the film distorted the history in any way". This time it's Kangana Ranaut-starrer Manikarnika, which has caught the eye of a Brahmin group from Rajasthan.

Jain in his reply, further said Vijendra Prasad of "Bahubali" and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" fame had conducted a researched, with the help of a huge team, and written the story after consulting scholars and historians, and lyricist Prasoon Joshi was penning the dialogues and lyrics.

Kangana asserted that Rani Laxmibai is the "daughter of India" and the movie only contains sequences that will bring pride and glory to her stature rather than shame.

After eying the situation that Sanjay Leela Bhansali's padmaavat has faced, many producers and directors are quite conscious about making historical films.

The Mahasabha's president had also met Rajasthan Governor Kalyan Singh, on Thursday demanding that the filmmaker be directed to give an affidavit that there is no such scene in the film. She clarified, "There is no love angle in the film".

Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi is due to be released in theatres on April 27, 2018.

Earlier on Friday, Kangana Ranaut, who plays the role of Rani Lakshmibai in the film, lambasted the controversy around the film saying that certain individuals and groups just want to get famous and hence they are creating the hullabaloo.
