Bollywood’s upcoming film Manikarnika is the latest from B-Town to encounter a controversial row with protests erupting only days prior to its release.

The Rajput organization ‘karni sena’ is apparently unhappy with some scenes and the portrayal of the queen of Jhansi in the film.

Kangana who has directed and plays the titular role in the movie said she is willing to fight it down with Karni Sena if need be.

When the actress was asked about her reactions to these threats she said, “Four historians have certified Manikarnika, we have got censor certificate as well, Karni Sena has been conveyed this but they are continuing to harass me if they don’t stop then they should know I am also a Rajput and I will destroy each one of them.”

As per the media reports, the Karni Sena’s Maharashtra wing allegedly penned down a letter to the makers of the movie claiming that "if the image of Rani Laxmi Bai is maligned in the film or if she is shown to be the lover of some Britisher then the makers will face consequences."
