Actress Kangana Ranaut, whose forthcoming film Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi has sailed through many controversies, has said she will not apologize to right-wing Shri Rajput Karni Sena for the statement she made against them.
Kangana Ranaut interacted with the media when she unveiled first look of Amrapali X Manikarnika jewellery collection on Wednesday in Mumbai.
There were reports that Shri Rajput Karni Sena opposed Manikarnika… as it shows Queen Laxmibai dancing to a special number, saying it is against tradition. They asked the makers of the film to show them the movie before its release.
Reacting to their statement Kangana made a statement that “I am a Rajput and I will destroy them.”
Now, Shri Rajput Karni Sena claimed the outfit is not involved in the protests against Kangana Ranaut starrer movie and stated that some people are using Shri Rajput Karni Sena’s name for vested interests but they demanded apology from Kangana for making derogatory statement against their organization.

Kangana said, “I will not apologize to anybody. I have never apologized whenever I haven’t made a mistake. We have promised that we haven’t shown anything wrong about Rani Laxmibai in the film so, they should support us.
Rani Laxmibai is not my relative and I feel she is daughter of the entire country so, we should support the film. Shri Rajput Karni Sena should not play their ego card with me. And I am not here to say sorry to anyone.”
Kangana Ranaut is also seen paying tribute to Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray on his birth anniversary. She paid tribute ahead of the release of Manikarnika which will be clashing with the release of the biopic Thackeray. Both the films will release on January 25.
