New Delhi: Kangana Ranaut's latest outing Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi's makers are trying to avoid box office clash with megastar Rajinikanth's much-awaited film 2.0. Kamal Jain, the producer of Manikarnika told mid-day that "We have mounted the movie on a scale that's hard to imagine. We don't want to clash or release too close to a film that can eat into our business. While we want to release the film between August and September, we haven't zeroed in on a date yet." He said that they have not discussed the release dates with Team 2.0 and they want to "wait and come to a consensus." "Movies like Rani Laxmibai biopic are a one-time creation; we can't afford to go wrong with it. So, rushing with dates is not a good idea," he added.
Kangana Ranaut told news agency IANS,"If you see, we started the shooting of Manikarnika in the month of May last year and now it's been only one year since we started shooting. We launched the film in Varanasi on May 5 and we started shooting for it in June-July last year. I think when you make a film on huge scale, then it normally takes one or one and half year but I can say that this year we will be able to release the film."
The movie is the story of freedom fighter, Rani Laxmibai. She bravely fought the East India Company when they tried to take her kingdom. It highlights the famous rebellion of 1857. Pavitra Rishta actress Ankita Lokhande, Bengali actor Jisshu Sengupta and Sonu Sood are also present in the film.
