After a lot of controversial twists and turns in the making of Manikarnika - The Queen Of Jhansi, the storm has finally settled down. Kangana Ranaut's portrayal as Manikarnika in the film is touted to reignite patriotism in the true sense.

As Kangana Ranaut is currently occupied in the post-production of the film, the actress had earlier refused to share credits with the original director of the film, Krish. However, her in depth involvement in many aspects of the project has earned her the directorial credits with Krish in the historical drama.

Speaking about the same, a source stated to a leading tabloid, "Kangana helmed the 45-day schedule that included the re-shoot of several key parts of the drama. Not just that, after she returned from the US earlier this week, she was thoroughly involved in the editing process along with Rameshwar Bhagat. She is overseeing the VFX work, the music and the final cut as well, all of which are the director's responsibilities. Kangana also cut short the first schedule of Panga to accommodate the post-production of Manikarnika."

Confirming about Kangana scoring directorial credits with Krish, the producer of the film, Kamal Jain revealed, "The film is finally looking exactly the way we had envisioned it. Kangana is a perfectionist who headlined every department. We are happy with what she has done and it would be unfair to not give her credit where it's due."

Meanwhile, Manikarnika will feature television actress Ankita Lokhande as the debutante along with other stars Atul Kulkarni and Zeeshan Ayyub in key roles. The film is scheduled to release on January 25, 2019.
