Times are not looking so good for Kangana Ranaut and her film Manikarnika. Director Krish Jagarlamudi seems to have opened a can of worms after he hurled credit-stealing accusations towards Kangana. Now, the film's cast member Mishti Chakarborty, who plays Kashibai, has come out to say that her role has been drastically reduced in the final cut. On the other hand, the film's box office performance is on a decline.

Read all this and more in today's entertainment news roundup.

In a recent conversation with Bollywood Hungama, actress Mishti Chakarborty said that she had initially said no to Manikarnika, but was promised a meaty role by producer Kamal Jain. But she was shocked and disappointed to see the final cut of the film. She said that after the exit of director Krish Jagarlamudi, her scenes were re-shot and the final film has given her lesser screen time than what was initially promised. Mishti's statements come a day after Krish said that he exited the film because of Kangana, who re-shot major portions of the film after his departure.
