Kangana Ranaut Vs Hrithik Roshan: Manikarnika to clash with Super 30 on January 25, next year
New Delhi : Kangana Ranaut's much-awaited Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi has been scheduled to be released on January 25 next year. Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 is also slated to hit the screen on the same day. Will the box-office war begin between the once rumoured couple? The ‘queen’ Kangana was in news for claiming her alleged affair with ‘Krrish’ Hrithik, which the later continued to deny.
On Saturday, trade analyst Taran Adarsh announced that the film will hit screens on January 25 next year, which means Kangana period piece must brace for box office clash with Super 30, starring Hrithik Roshan. "Mark the date: Manikarnika -The Queen Of Jhansi to release on 25 Jan 2019 [Republic Day]... Stars Kangana Ranaut... Directed by Krish... Produced by Zee Studios and Kamal Jain," Mr Adarsh tweeted.
The news about Manikarnika's release date was flashed after Rajinikanth booked November 29 this year for 2.0.
Meanwhile, Super 30 release date has already been rescheduled previously, it was scheduled to arrive in theatres on November this year. However, Mr Adarsh notified that the date has been pushed to next year. Hrithik Roshan’s film is a biopic on Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar, who trains a batch of 30 aspiring IIT candidates every year. The name of the movie is directly drawn from real name of coaching program 'Super 30’, launched in 2002, to guide 30 financially weak students from Patna for IIT admissions every year.
“#Super30, the Anand Kumar biopic that was slated for release on 23 Nov 2018, will now release on 25 Jan 2019... Stars Hrithik Roshan... Directed by Vikas Bahl... #RepublicDayWeekend “ tweets Adarsh
Earlier this year, speculation was widespread that Super 30 was to clash with 2.0, when Manikarnika Producer Kamal Jain told that their main aim is to avoid clashing with 2.0: "Movies like Rani Laxmibai biopic are a one-time creation; we can't afford to go wrong with it. So, rushing with dates is not a good idea."
Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi is a period story of Rani Laxmibai, who is revered as one of the first freedom fighters and the Rebellion of 1857. In the movie Manikarnika, Kangana Ranaut will be seen with co-stars like Ankita Lokhande, Jisshu Sengupta and Sonu Sood.
It was last year that Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan were featured in news for their public argument. Kangana repeatedly claimed about her alleged an affair, which Hrithik has continued to deny, in turn blaming that she was constructing a romantic relationship. Both of them shared the same screen in Kites and Krrish 3.
