Kangana's Manikarnika to clash with Hrithik's Super 30
Both films are scheduled to hit the screens on the Republic Day weekend next year
Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan will clash again, this time at the box office. The former's Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi has been locked for release on January 25, 2019, when Hrithik's Super 30 will also be released.
The two actors were involved in a row which began after Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her ex-boyfriend. What followed was an exchange of legal complaints and mud-slinging. Now their films are set to clash on the Republic Day 2019 weekend.
Zee Studios and producer Kamal Jain on Saturday announced the release date of their magnum opus Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi, in which Kangana will bring alive the "extraordinary tale of strength and valour that inspired Indians across generations." The film is directed by Krish.
Hrithik's Super 30, meanwhile, will see him take on the role of real-life mathematics wizard Anand Kumar, who teaches 30 meritorious and talented candidates each year from economically backward sections for the entrance examination for the Indian Institute of Technology.
The actor has been upbeat about playing a man from Bihar and flaunts a simpleton's look for the film. It is backed by Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films and directed by Vikas Bahl.
