Krish slams Kangana for taking directorial credits

For starters, Manikarnika's co-director Krish expressed his resentment over Kangana taking the 'undeserving' directorial credits.

Krish alleged that he wasn't aware of Kangana replacing him as the director.

In fact, he was surprised to know that Manikarnika was being re-recorded after he had finished his edits in June 2018.

Further, the director claimed that he wasn't invited for the screening of Manikarnika before release.

In the chat, Kangana reportedly clarified that the film had to be reworked because "Mr. Goynka" (Punit Goenka, whose Zee Studios banner distributed the film) was disappointed with Krish's work in Manikarnika.

After the studio screening, new material was written (in which she had apparently no say) and producers had to spend an additional Rs. 20 crore for the reshoot.
