Kangana Raunat started shooting for Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s ‘Panga’ in Bhopal last week. The actor is multi-tasking as the edit of ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is currently underway in Mumbai.
Though ‘Panga’ is a long schedule, she is overseeing the edit as well. Whenever she has a day off from the shoot, she zips in and out of Mumbai to check how the film is shaping up. Kangy sure knows how to do a balancing act, considering she has helmed and acted in the Rani Laxmibai biopic as well.
After director Krish abandoned ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’, Ranaut had to take up reins of direction on her hands and reshoot several portions of the period drama. Krish left the project midway to work on the South movie – the NTR biopic. After working tirelessly for the war saga and completing the shoot, she started looking into its post-production too.
However, Krish told the makers he won’t be available to do the editing. Said a source close to the development, “Krish called up the producers of ‘Manikarnika’ and informed them that he won’t be able to sit for the post-prod work on the film. He is busy finishing his South project which is being planned as a two-parter. It’s become more of an ego tussle now with him releasing the second part of the NTR biopic on the same day as ‘Manikarnika’.”
‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is slated to release on January 25, 2019.
