Despite releasing in theatres about a month ago, Kangana Ranautâ€™s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is still courting controversies.
Now her sister Rangoli has accused popular TV show host Mini Mathur of mocking the biopic on Rani Laxmibai, which has earned over Rs 100 crore. It all started with Mathur taking to Twitter on Tuesday to praise Zoya Akhtarâ€™s Gully Boy.
â€œI never knew I could get goosebumps on the soles of my feet.. Gullyboy has made 2019 worthwhile already for me. #bhothhard #Gullyboy @RanveerOfficial @aliaa08 #ZoyaAkhtar @ankurtewari,â€ she tweeted about the film, which stars Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in lead roles.
Hurt at Mathur complimenting Gully Boy but not saying anything about Manikarnika, a Twitter user commented, â€œ@minimathur ur thinking also so mini..u got time to watch #GullyBoy n not a single word for #manikarnikaqueenofjhansi ..be equal to everyone donâ€™t be biased (sic).â€
To this, Mathur wrote, â€œOh I apologise to you profusely as I havenâ€™t seen that film yet. And as the official national film critic it is my humble duty to write on every film By the way, how was the experience of making the film?â€

Rangoli, who is known to be as outspoken as Ranaut, took offence to Mathurâ€™s jibe, and tweeted, â€œIts nt evry film @minimathur its d legnd f LaxmiBai, one f d bst period films evr made sheâ€™s no ordnry succes stry sheâ€™s d vry embodimnt of Bharat Mata if u faild 2 aprciat anodr womns effrts 2 bring dis gigantic conciousnes alive on big screen den dnt b coky bout it its nt funny (sic).â€

Mathur is yet to respond to Rangoliâ€™s attack.
Interestingly, a video of Ranaut shooting one of Manikarnikaâ€™s war scenes on a dummy horse has also gone viral, much to the amusement of the Twitterati.
