Kangana Ranaut’s ambitious outing, ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’, has hit the screens today and is eyeing a big opening at the box office. The film has released on about 3,000 screens across the country. According to trade buzz this Bollywood flick is expected to record a figure of Rs 10 crore on its opening day. ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ has been through a lot of controversy, with director Krishna Jagarlamudi leaving the film and Kangana claiming to have directed 60 percent of the film. The flick’s budget also increased massively with reshooting and rescheduling as the film was not ready on time. From Rs 60 crore, ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ was finally made at Rs 125 crore, doubling its budget! Another biopic releasing today is ‘Thackeray’. The Nawazuddin Siddiqui-starrer is predicted to earn Rs 3-4 crore on it first day.
