Kangana Ranaut and director Krish’s ongoing war is not under the wraps anymore. Krish was the director of Kangana’s Manikarnika but he left the movie in the middle and started directing NTR's biopic. The director was upset with Kangana's claims that she had directed 70% of Manikarnika. Kangana too accused Krish of abandoning Manikarnika for directing NTR's biopic. Now that the biopic has failed to shine at the Box Office, Kangana has given a statement taking a straight dig at Krish.
Talking to an entertainment website, Kangana said, "Yes, I also read about zero recovery of NTR, it's called black mark on the actor’s career. My heart goes out to Balakrishna sir who trusted Krish and put so much at stake, but for me now is the time to question every vulture who was out for my blood, who attacked and harassed me for taking charge of a troubled situation and making a critically acclaimed and commercially successful film (Manikarnika), but what is shameful is that Krish and some paid media ran a sabotage campaign against a martyr’s biopic. Honestly, I am embarrassed of them, our freedom fighters gave blood for some thankless fools."
NTR's Telugu biopic is based on the life and political journey of N T Rama Rao, essayed by Nandamuri Balakrishna and it was released in two parts – NTR: Kathanayakudu and NTR: Mahanayakudu. The first part released on January 9 and the second part released on February 22. It was originally supposed to release as one film but it was the director’s decision to release it as two parts and this left the team upset. The first part did not do too well at the box office but a lot of hopes on the second part and the box office returns are awaited.
