Kangana Raniut’s starrer Manikarnika is just a day away from it’s release and recently, a group of people from Karni Sena were seen protesting outside the actress’ house. The police reached the spot and the actress was given protection.
The group demands an apology from Kangana for her comments made against them while responding to their threat to ban the film.
Kangana had said a few days ago, in response to the threat by Maharashtra wing of Karni Sena – “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”.

Reacting on Kangana’s statement, Ajay Singh Sengar, president of Maharashtra Karni Sena had said, “If she continues to threaten the members of our outfit, we will not let her walk freely in Maharashtra and will burn her film sets.”
Later in the evening, Kangana was spotted at an event where she was asked about their demand, she said “No, I will not apologise to anyone. I never apologise for things that I have not done wrong. However, we have reassured them that the film (Manikarnika) doesn’t show anything offensive. They should support us and the film. She (Rani Lakshmibai) is India’s daughter and everyone should push that film forward. She is not a relative of mine. She is to me what she is for the entire nation,”
“Ye faltu ka ego issue mere sath karne ki zaroorat nahi hai. Main yahan pe kisi ko sorry-worry kehne ke liye nahi hu (There is no need for useless ego issues with me. I am not here to apologise to anyone).” she added.
Manikarnika is based on the life and struggles of Rani Laxmi Bai of Jhansi and her war against the British East India Company, during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.
The film will release on January 25.
