Manikarnika plays it safe; Kangana Ranaut asked to ‘behave’

via Bollywood Hungama You won’t be hearing Kangana Ranaut shooting off her mouth against Hrithik Roshan and Karan Johar when her next film, the prestigious historical Manikarnika releases in April 2018.The makers of Manikarnika are determined to make all the right moves.

Everybody knows her loose talk damaged the prospects of last film Simran beyond repair. That kind of scandalous promotion would ruin Manikarnika.”For those who came in late, Manikarnika directed by Telugu director Krish is a bio-pic on the Rani Of Jhansi whose valour and nationalism replicate Rani Padmavati’s image.By telling Kangana to be…

While one waits to see when does their labour of love arrive on the big screen, at least their earlier work can be relived in theatres, what with the event been termed as ‘Return of Blockbusters’ for the du…
