Manikarnika producer Kamal Jain responds to Krish
Post the release of Manikarnika on January 25, Krish in multiple interviews has claimed that the film was hijacked from him by Kangana
“It’s very sad how Krish is trying to claim credit for what he doesn’t deserve. It was the studio’s and my collective decision to give credits the way they are. To attack Kangana who stood by the film from beginning to end is very sad. Whatever she did, she could not have done without production and creative team’s consent. For Krish, rather than making it a media trial — specifically after the huge critical-acclaim claim and box office success, which is a clear attempt to harm our film — why doesn’t he go the legal way if he is speaking the truth and prove his claims? We tried to handle this matter on every level but nothing was done without informing him. It’s sad he has chosen to create this controversy at the stage," Kamal Jain said in the statement.
Post the release of Manikarnika on January 25, Krish in multiple interviews has claimed that the film was hijacked from him by Kangana. He has also accused the producers — Kamal Jain and Zee Studios — of misappropriating the directorial credit in the film's end scroll, wherein Kangana’s name appears before Krish’s.
