#Manikarnika crosses ₹ 50 cr... Despite positive feedback, the biz is clearly divided: Some circuits holding well, some aren’t... Weekend 2 crucial...

The collections are on a downward spiral despite Manikarnika facing little competition from any other movie. Its only rival, Thackeray, while doing well in Maharashtra, hasn't affected its business in other parts of the country.
Co-directed by Kangana and Krish Jagarlamudi, Manikarnika also stars Ankita Lokhande, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Atul Kulkarni, Jisshu Sengupta, Richard Keep, Suresh Oberoi and Danny Denzongpa among others.
The film has been in the news after Krish named Kangana as the real reason why he abruptly exited the period drama, accusing her of not giving him enough credit for directing the film.
“I don’t know how Kangana can sleep well by taking the first credit in direction when she does not deserve it,” he said in a recent interview.
Krish also claimed that Kangana wanted Sonu Sood’s character to be killed off in the first half, itself which led to big arguments between the actress and him.
