Kangana Ranaut Calls Krish Jaggarlamudi Out On NTR Biopic Failure

Kangana Ranaut Promotes 'Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi'

Kangana Ranaut called Krish Jaggarlamudi out on the dismal performance of the NTR Biopic, and said that she took over as director of Manikarnika to save the film from a similar fate. Krish left Manikarnika to oversee the works of NTR biopic. The two have been embroiled in a mudslinging contest ever since the biopic on Jhansi Rani released on January 25.


According to a report in India Today, the actress said that the failure of the NTR biopic proved that she was merely taking charge of a troubled situation by taking over the directorial duties of Manikarnika.

“Yes, I also read about zero recoveries of NTR, it’s called black mark on the actor’s career. My heart goes out to Balakrishna sir who trusted Krish and put so much at stake, but for me now is the time to question every vulture who was out for my blood, who attacked and harassed me for taking charge of a troubled situation and making a critically acclaimed and commercially successful film, but what is shameful is that Krish and some paid media ran a sabotage campaign against a martyr’s biopic. Honestly, I am embarrassed of them, our freedom fighters gave blood for some thankless fools,” she said.


The NTR biopic was released in two parts – NTR Kathanayakudu and NTR Mahanayakudu. A ToI report states that the latter, which released on February 22, has incurred a loss with zero per cent recovery. Apparently, it was the director’s decision to release the movie as two parts and this had not gone down well with the lead actor Balakrishna.

Soon after the release of Manikarnika, director Krish Jagarlamundi had come out saying that Kangana Ranaut had hijacked his movie, despite he being at the helm of affairs for more than 100 days. She fired cast members like Sonu Sood and reshot certain portions to project her character in the main light. This started the spat between the two.

However, many others have come out in support of Kangana.
