There seems  to be no end  to the troubles being faced by Manikarnika, the Rani Of Jhansi  bio-pic starring Kangana Ranaut. First, it was  director Krish who left the  project incomplete when  the  film’s leading lady stepped  in to direct and re-shoot extra scenes for the film. Some actors like Sonu Sood also walked  out  of the  project allegedly after his role was chopped and he developed differences with the makers. Sonu’s exit had created a huge controversy. Kangana, thereafter, took complete control over the project and is racing against time to ensure that it hits the theatres by January 26, 2019 to cash in on the Republic Day fervour.

However, now there is fresh controversy over it. The film’s  distinguished cinematographer Kiran Deohans has walked  out of  the  film, say reports. The remaining portions  of Manikarnika are  now being shot by Sachin Krishnan, the cinematographer  best known  for his work with  director Prakash Jha in films like Rajneeti, Arakshan and  Satyagraha.

Deohans  is known for his magnificent  cinematography in  costume dramas  like Jodha Akbar and Khele Hum Jee Haan Se. While no official reason has been given for Deohans’s departure  it is being said by  sources  from within the Manikarnika crew that Deohans decided to depart after  Ranaut stepped  in to direct the film.
