Kangana Ranaut says Manikarnika producer Kamal Jain fine, dismisses reports of him suffering paralytic stroke
Kangana Rananut dismissed reports that the producer of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Kamal Jain, has suffered a paralytic stroke, saying he is “fine” and on “road to recovery”. The film, starring Kangana Ranaut in the lead role as Rani Laxmibai, is scheduled to release on January 25 over the Republic Day weekend. Kamal Jain has co-produced the film with Zee Studios and Kairos Kontent Studios.
“He is doing fine. The reports are misleading. He fell sick last week and is on his way to recovery. I am in touch with him everyday. Request everyone to please stop backing sensational reports,” Kangana said in a message to Times Now.
Reports earlier said the producer has been put on a ventilator after Jain had tweeted about his condition. “Dear friends, this certainly is not the best time to be in hospital. Hope to get well soon and enjoy the success of our collective dream & hardwork. My best wishes to all, “ adding, “I will be back as soon as possible, till then I’ll be with you in spirit and soul,” he added in his tweet.
Manikarnika has been through a lot of controversies. The film was to be directed by south Indian filmmaker Krish who left it midway amid speculation that Kangana was not happy with the way it had shaped up; actor Sonu Sood followed suit. Kangana then took on directorial duties and shares credits for the film with Krish.
Manikarnika will be released in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. It stars Ankita Lokhande, Jisshu Sengupta, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Danny Denzongpa. President Ram Nath Kovind watched it on Friday at a special screening at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
