Kangana Ranaut’s first directorial venture, ‘Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi’ has been leaked online on the website Tamilrockers. It is available on illegal online streaming sites for the users to free download in 1080p full-HD print. And the worst part is the movie leaked just hours after it hit the theatres. This undoubtedly affects box office collections and it turns out bad news for the entire Manikarnika team who worked day and night to make it hit.
Vicky Kaushal’s offering, Uri: The Surgical Strike, Viswasam, The Accidental Prime Minister and more are the big Bollywood releases which became the victim of piracy. It’s not only about Bollywood, but the truth is also that even Hollywood movies like Avengers and Kollywood movies have fallen prey to notorious piracy sites.
Due to multiple contributing members across the globe on the website Tamilrockers, it is difficult to put a stop to as they always come up with a new domain when one is blocked by The Department of Telecommunication.

Directed by Kangana Ranaut and Krish, Manikarnika revolves around the story of Rani Laxmibai, who fought against the East India Company and the British to prevent her kingdom of Jhansi from being usurped during 1857-58.

But Kangana’s performance in the historical drama Manikarnika has been hailed by critics as well as the audience. Krish, who was originally meant to be the sole director claimed in an interview that Kangana “wanted everything to herself” and “blatantly reduced” the length of her co-stars’ parts. Many reports noted that the film “is a one-woman-show”.
Manikarnika suffers from downright ridiculous scenes, stilted dialogues, lazy writing, shoddy visual effects and bizarre caricaturing of the English.
