The recent development from the sets of upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ suggest that some workers have not got their dues for the film. When the leading lady of the movie, Kangana Ranaut was asked about this incident, she said that, “I’ve been informed about it there’s nothing as such and it’s just a dispute with a vendor where they don’t think that they should pay as much the vendor is demanding for.”
Kangana Ranaut has always been very vocal about the prejudice that exists in the film industry and even on this occasion she said that, there’s no second thought about the fact that the labourers are not given their due attention in this industry and the actors are given all the importance.
“I also feel like being a technician as I think they’re devalued. I also want to venture into writing and direction and jobs which are for the unsung heroes and I also want to motivate the people for same. But when this injustice happens with labourers and technicians it can’t be tolerated”.
Standing tall with the technicians and workers she said that even though she has given her heart, blood and sweat to the movie and 300 days of her life to it but if she gets to know of any wrong doing done during this time she will disassociate with it right away and that is the message she has given to her team as well. “I said that I won’t go for any promo launch and I won’t promote the film as well even if a single labourer’s money has got stuck. I also don’t think any such issue can happen on a film like this and Zee Studios have a great reputation and are a big studio so there’ll be no complaints from our end.”
’Manikarnika : The Queen of Jhansi’ will be releasing on January 25.
