'Manikarnika' producer Kamal Jain isn't critical, his production company confirms
Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika: Queen Of Jhansi is just a week away from release and the team was jolted by sad news on Saturday. The movie's producer Kamal Jain was rushed to a hospital after he suffered from a paralytic stroke. While reports suggested he is critical, his production company dismissed the claims. The company revealed Kamal is suffering from throat and lung infection.
According to the media reports, Jain had the paralytic stroke on Saturday and was admitted to Kokilaben Ambani Hospital. It was suggested he was put on a ventilator after his health deteriorated. Media reports also claimed that his condition is critical. This certainly got Manikarnika team and fans concerned. However, recent statement from his company confirms there is no truth in these reports.
Dismissing the reports, Jain's production company stated that the producer isn't critical. He is suffering from throat and lung infection. "He has been hospitalized but it's due to throat and lung infection. His condition isn't as critical as reported. But of course, lung infection isn't an easy health problem to deal with either," Vishesh from Jain's production company told a daily.
Earlier, Jain also shared the news of his health on micro-blogging site Twitter. The producer wrote that this isn't the best time to get hospitalized as his team is busy with Manikarnika promotions. But, he assured he would be back soon and wrote, "I will be back as soon as possible, till then I'll be with you in spirit and soul".
Jain further wished luck to the team of Manikarnika. He said that they have worked hard to make it a blockbuster. "Guys we worked so hard for two years to realize this dream and to make Manikarnika the blockbuster it deserves to be made as. I hope we all get to enjoy the success of our collective dream, honesty and hard work," he added.

Meanwhile, Manikarnika is facing protests from the Karni Sena. The right-wing outfit alleged that the movie has distorted facts about Rani Laxmibai. Karni Sena claimed that the movie showed a romantic relationship between a British officer and Laxmibai. Besides, the group also raised an objection on a dance sequence in Manikarnika. They threatened the team with dire consequences.
Miffed with the protests, Kangana defended Manikarnika and claimed that the movie doesn't distort facts. The actress vowed to destroy Karni Sena if she is harassed. "Four historians have certified Manikarnika, we have got censor certificate, Karni Sena has been conveyed this. If they don't stop then they should know I will destroy each one of them," Kangana added.
