After director Krish abandoned MANIKARNIKA: THE QUEEN OF JHANSI, Kangana Ranaut had to take up reins of direction on her hands and reshoot several portions of the period drama. Krish left the project midway to work on the South movie - the NTR biopic. Kangana has been working tirelessly for the war saga and completed shoot recently. But that is not the end of it all as
a similar issue has cropped up during the film's post-production.
While Kangana has worked night and day to finish the shoot of the movie it still needs to be edited. However, Krish has told the makers he won't be available to do the same. Says a source close to the development, "Krish called up the producers of Manikarnika and informed them that he won't be able to sit for the post-prod work on the film. He is busy finishing his South project which is being planned as a two-parter. It's become more of an ego tussle now with him releasing the second part of the NTR biopic on the same day as Manikarnika."
Hence the makers have now requested Kangana to finish the edits, as well. Kangana has directed 90-95% of movie's drama sequences. "Whatever portions of the film has been retained are majorly the action scenes, which have been shot and designed by Hollywood stunt director Nick Powell. Kangana has reshot everything else in the 45-day run on the schedule that was wrapped up recently. Despite the entire fracas, Kangana did not want to take the director's credit. But with Krish orphaning the film, the makers have had no choice but to return to her now to complete MANIKARNIKA. Kamal Jain, the producer of MANIKARNIKA has spoken to Kangana to take up the director's credit given for the effort she's put in on the project but she's not accepted it yet."
