It's already known that director Radhakrishna Jagarlamudi opted himself out of Kangana Ranaut starrer 'Manikarnika', during the final leg of the shoot and jumped on to work with Balakrishna for NTR biopic. But, several reports emerged that Krish had some technical differences with the lead actress Kangana and so, he decided to stay out of the project.
Now that the film is out in cinemas, the director gave an interview and spoke on why he had to step out. Krish said: "It's because of Kangana I walked out of Manikarnika as she was very rude to me on the sets. And she always carried that behaviour on sets." He added, "She once called me saying that the film's producer didn't like the scenes I picturised and it is like a Bhojpuri film. I just smiled at her as audiences knew how my films will be. She didn't listen to my explanation and was very rude to me over the call."
Finding fault in prompting Kangana's name as the film director, Krish said he's directed almost all the portions in the film. 'I don't understand how she's able to sleep after taking credit for the work done by others,' stated Krish by further adding that the Queen actress had reshot the same scenes he picturised.
