She asked Kangana's sister Rangoli Chandel to congratulate her for her performance in the film and added that she has her "greatest support". "It has been two days and I can't get her performance out of my mind. The only explanation I can give myself is that she must have been 'possessed' it couldn't have been an act it just couldn't. Please congratulate her and tell her she has our greatest support," Samantha tweeted. Replying to Samantha's tweeted Rangoli wrote: "Thank you so much."



Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika is doing a remarkable business at the box office. The film which opened to mostly positive reviews by the critics and audience is inches away from cruising past the Rs 50 crore mark.

However, Kangana Ranaut and her new film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi have been trending since its release not only for the box office reports but also for the controversy surrounding credits for the film's primary director. Kangana's co-director Krish claims that more than 70 per cent of his work has been retained in the final version of the film. Rangoli has been on a tweeting spree after the release ofManikarnika on Friday. After Krish said in several interviews that most of the final version of Manikarnika was filmed by him, Rangoli hit back at him saying that that everything is on record and it will take minutes to "burst his bubble".





Filmmakers like Pooja Bhatt and Bejoy Nambiar shared their views on the ongoing controversy on Twitter. Speaking about the on the controversy, Pooja Bhatt shared Krish's interview with Bollywood Hungama and wrote: "This is so wrong... on every level. Eventually, it is credit we work for... money comes and money goes... the first rule of filmmaking is to acknowledge people's contribution."




Manikarnika, a biopic on Rani Laxmi Bai also features Ankita Lokhande, Jisshu Sengupta, Zeeshan Ayyub, Danny Denzongpa and Atul Kulkarni.
