Meanwhile, actress Kangana Ranaut, who stars and co-produces the film, told IANS that they will release Manikarnika this year for sure. "If you see, we started the shooting of Manikarnika in the month of May last year and now it's been only one year since we started shooting. We launched the film in Varanasi on May 5 and we started shooting for it in June-July last year. I think when you make a film on huge scale, then it normally takes one or one and half year but I can say that this year we will be able to release the film."
