Mumbai: The film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi featuring Kangana Ranaut will clash with Thackeray but the actress has said that no one approached or “pressured” them to change the release date.

Earlier, Manikarnika…Thackeray and Cheat India were slated to be released on 25 January.

Cheat India, which has Emraan Hashmi in the lead role, however, advanced its date and would now release on 18 January.

When asked if there was any pressure considering her film’s face-off with the biopic of the late Shiv Sena founder, Kangana told reporters, “No one told us any such thing. Neither anyone told us to postpone the release date nor there was any kind of pressure on us.” 

“No one even approached us. So, we are very happy that we have a sort of a big window, there is a vacation around,” Ranaut added.

The actor, who has co-directed Manikarnika… with Krish, said the film is “kind of a festive release” and both the movies can find space successfully. 

Kangana was speaking at the launch of her new song from Manikarnika… on Wednesday. The film is based on the life of Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi and her war against the British East India Company, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.

Where China & India, Resisting & Improving Democracy, Meet

What you see in Hong Kong is China resisting democracy; what you see in Kashmir is India promoting it; a reasonably capitalist China does not offer freedom politically but India, held back at times by the choice of the people, is still opening up; there could be a point of convergence as the two nations move in opposite directions
