Manikarnika, the movie which is seeking the limelight of making the biggest inception of 2019. The movie has been into contentious terms, due to many reasons and recently one big obstacle came in front before the release of the movie. This Thursday, Karni Sena stand against the movie as they have some problems with the movie. Rani Laxmibai’s relation with a British Officer has been the bone of contention for the Karni Sena.
The National Head of the Karni Sena, Sukhdev Singh Shekhawat told to the Mid-Day, “Time and again, we have seen that filmmakers try to take liberties by showing certain scenes [with the purpose of] adding titillation. We won’t tolerate such nonsense.”
The movie is very close to its release date and had already faced many sorts of issues earlier, Karni was asked that why he waited for a long time to raise his disagreement with the movie, he said, “We had raised concerns in February last year. Despite the Supreme Court judgment, we didn’t allow Padmaavat to release in many states. Manikarnika will face the same consequence. We have requested the producers to show us the film before its release. If they release it [without showing it to us], we will damage property [theatres, here] and won’t be liable for it.”
