After the tremendous success of Queen and Tanu Weds Manu, Kangana Ranaut became recognized as a very skilled artist. After these films, Kangana Ranaut tried her hand in everything from writing to direction. Kangana Ranaut’s film as Rani Laxmibai in Manikarnika may have proved to be average but Kangana Ranaut did not get much praise. Since then Kangana Ranaut has worked in many projects but could not create the same magic as before. Now his pain over his failure has spilled over. Kangana Ranaut shared this pain in response to a user’s question.
I want to make that story I have the script ready, researched and worked on it for three years but @netflix , @amazonIN and other studios wrote back to me that they have clear guidelines they don’t do so called politically motivated films, @JioCinema said we don’t work with… https://t.co/xQeVfc3SyI

OTT created distance
A user named Varun Verma asked Kangana Ranaut whether she could make a film on Bilkis Bano. The user also wrote that Kangana Ranaut has done a lot for women empowerment. A woman like Bilkis Bano has endured a lot and fought for justice. Kangana Ranaut answered this question. In which his pain has spilled over. Kangana Ranaut wrote that she wants to make this story. He also has the script ready. On which he has worked for about three years. But Netflix and Amazon India clearly replied that they have clear guidelines not to make politically motivated movies. Jio Cinema has also clearly said that he is a BJP supporter and hence will not work with them. Yes, it is going through merger right now so I have no option.
Was the flop film the reason?
After this post of Kangana Ranaut, questions are bound to arise as to why OTT is keeping distance from her. Whereas his movie Tejas, which was released some time ago, was released only on Zee 5. So, is Kangana Ranaut’s continuous flopping films the reason for this? If we look at it, his last few films have disappointed badly. Which includes Dhaakad, Thalaivi, Panga, Judgmental etc. Manikarnika, released before this, also proved to be an average movie. The condition of Simran, Rangoon, Katti Batti and I Love NY was also bad. At present, the audience is waiting for his film Emergency made on Emergency.
