After Padmaavat, the next movie to be a part of the controversy bubble is Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Based on the life of the 19th century Queen of Jhansi, Lakshmi Bai, a prominent freedom fighter in Indian history, the makers have clarified time and again this movie is not a biopic!
Unfortunately, this movie has landed in a number of controversies with several people saying the makers have distorted historical facts. According to reports, Sarva Brahman Mahasabha, President Suresh Mishra held a press conference in Jaipur to address the issue where he also claimed that there are scenes in the film portraying a love affair between Rani of Jhansi and a British man.
Despite the makers confirming time and again that there is no such scene in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, the President of Sarva Brahman Mahasabha requested a ban on the movie. He said, “We learnt about it from our friends and acquaintances in various parts of Rajasthan where some scenes of the film are being shot. The film is based on a foreigner’s book and tries to dampen the queen’s reputation.” Manikarnika was earlier being shot in Jaipur and Jodhpur.
Further, the President has also sent a letter to Kamal Jain, the producer of this movie and has made an enquiry about the writer’s and historians consulted before Manikarnika was made. “Nobody can even imagine that Maharani Laxmi Bai could have an affair. She died fighting the British at a young age. If a film is to be made on her life, it should be a biopic,” says Mishra in his letter. While Mishra makes the contention that Rani of Jhansi died at an early age fighting the British and could never have had an affair with a British man in his letter, he also appeals to the state government for an affidavit from the makers of the film so that no distortion of history should take place. He adds, “If the same had been done in the case of Padmaavat, there would have been no issue at all. ”
This movie has already gone through a lot of hurdles in the past and for that, the release date of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi has been deferred indefinitely. Only time can tell on what happens with Kangana Ranaut’s next movie!
Pari Teasers Continue To Haunt Us!
The fourth teaser for Anushka Sharma’s Pari just hit the internet and from the looks of the 22 seconds clip, this movie continues to be extremely horrific. The teaser opens with an eerie shot if a half closed door from which Anushka can be seen sitting on top of a balcony’s railing.
The following shots are a parody of sounds and Anushka and are haphazardly brought together with a haunting background and terrifying music. The camera zooms over Anushka and her petrifying white with blood shot eyes turn towards the viewers.

Guess Who Tabu Blames For Being Single!
Tabu and Ajay Devgn have known each other for quite a while now. Apart from being co stars, the two are cousins as well! Even though they worked in a lot of movies like Haqeeqat, Thakshak and Vijaypath in the ‘90s, they have not done many movies after. Their last movie together was Golmaal Again.
The pair has been the best friends for a long time now, but the actress, in a recent interview, says that Ajay is the reason why she is single till today.
“Yes, Ajay and I have known each other for 25 years. He was my cousin Sameer Arya’s neighbour and close buddy, a part of my growing up years and that has laid the foundation of our relationship. When I was young, Sameer and Ajay would spy on me, follow me around and threaten to beat up any boys who are caught talking to me. They were the big bullies and if I am single today, it is because of Ajay. I hope he repents and regrets what he did,” Tabu said in a statement.
She might still be single, but the question here is, is she planning on tying the knot soon? About this, Tabu said, “I told him (Ajay) the other day to please find me a boy to marry. But jokes aside, our relationship has grown because we have worked so much with each other. From among the male actors, if there is anyone I can count on, it’s Ajay. He is a like a child and yet so protective. The atmosphere on set when he’s around is stress-free. We share a unique relationship and an unconditional affection.”
Tabu and Ajay Devgn have an envious relationship, one that is deep, meaningful and has a lot of layers. While they played mind games against each other in Dhrishyam, it was a refreshing change to see them in a comic role in Golmaal Again! Now, one can only wait to see the next movie they come together for!
