Ever since Deepika Padukone’s look as Rani Padmavati hit the screens, and the Ghoomar song started doing the rounds, the positive reviews have given Kangana Ranaut the heebie-jeebies.
If sources are to be believed, Kangana, who essays the role of Rani Laxmibai in Manikarnika — the Queen of Jhansi, is scared stiff after looking at the attention Deepika is getting for her role as Rani Padmavati in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus.
“How else can you explain the multiple pictures of Kangana in a queen’s avatar being ‘leaked’ from the sets on a daily basis? Kangana may be feeling anxious, but it is too early for her pictures to come out much before the release of the film. She may well want to piggyback on Deepika’s queen visuals coming out, but this is more of a knee-jerk reaction,” informs a trade source.
We will have to see which one manages to tell the story better. Or will Kangana, who already became queen in a film of the eponymous name, settle down and let the makers do their job?
