Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, starring Kangana Ranaut as the queen, is facing allegations of "distorting" history and having objectionable scenes involving Kangana, India Today reported.

On the other hand, the producer of the film, Kamal Jain issued an official clarification on the issue, which read, "As responsible filmmakers, we have taken utmost care while portraying Rani Lakshmi-bai's character and have consulted historians and scholars". "There is no romantic song or sequence with the Britishers in the film", he added. This time it's Kangana Ranaut-starrer Manikarnika, which has caught the eye of a Brahmin group from Rajasthan. She had led our country's first struggle for Independence and had laid down her life for the country.

Calling her his favourite woman leader, Rajamouli's father gives the evidence in the form of his daughter whom he named "Manikarnika" after the great warrior queen of Jhansi.
