Separately, Krish slams Kangana for taking directorial credits

Separately, Manikarnika co-director Krish slammed Kangana for taking directorial credits.

Krish alleged that Kangana wanted everything for herself and wished to change the script.

He also claimed that he had finished his edits in June 2018. However, Kangana replaced Krish as the director and re-shot 70 percent of the movie.
