Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is receiving praises from one and all, but the film isn’t doing great business at the box office. Though it has broken records for collecting huge amount for a female-driven movie, the high budget of the film plays the villain here. We all know that after the film’s release the co-director of the movie, Krish has been speaking about Kangana taking over the direction and her name appearing first in the credits. He has levelled allegations on Kangana for claiming that she has shot 70 percent of the film. While not many B-Towners have come in support of Kangana, Samantha Akkineni, a famous actress down South has praised Kangana and has come forward to support her. Samantha tweeted to Kangana’s sister Rangoli heaping accolades on Kangana's acting prowess.
Samantha has worked in many Tamil and Telugu movies and is one of the most successful actresses down South. Though Krish has directed only two Bollywood films (Gabbar Is Back and Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi), he is a big name down South. Samantha’s support to Kangana is a bit surprising as she and Krish both belong to the same industry. It may be the case that Samantha’s support for Kangana is genuine, but then it takes us to a few reports that were released a few months ago, that Samantha was going to star in NTR biopic which is directed by Krish. However, the actress is not a part of the film.
After reading Samantha’s tweet, Kangana’s sister Rangoli replied by thanking her. Let’s just hope that this fight comes to an end soon and the movie gets a good response at the box office in the coming days.
