Much of 2017 was spent trying to figure out who is right and who was wrong the in the infamous Kangana Ranaut-Hrithik Roshan battle. What started out as an interview given by Kangana to a website calling out her 'silly ex' turned into a full-fledged battle when it was exposed that the person being referred to was Hrithik Roshan. It was then a free for all, with charges, counter-charges, FIRs, legal notices and shocking interviews. Finally, both stars cooled off and not much has been heard of ever since.
However, now comes the news that Kangana and Hrithik are going to clash again, but this time it's a different and perhaps more important battleground - the box office. News is out that the actors will now be competiting for the audience's attention as both their films are scheduled to hit the cinemas in January this year. The Rangoon actress will release her most ambitous projects, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi on January 25, 2019, the same day that Hrithik's Super 30 is scheduled to release. Manikarnika was apparently set to release this year in April and was later pushed to August 15 and then to September.
However on Saturday, Zee Studios and the film’s producer Kamal Jain took to Twitter and said that it would release during the Republic Day weekend. Directed by Krish, the film will see the Queen star in the role of Rani Laxmibai. Hrithik’s Super 30, helmed by Vikas Bahl, is a biopic on Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar, who trains a batch of 30 aspiring IIT candidates every year.
Let the battle begin!
