Kangana Ranaut has been at the receiving end of trolls ever since her last film Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi hit the screens. From her voice to action scenes, netizens have questioned everything in the film and now they have got another reason to do it. A video of Kangana Ranaut has been leaked online from Manikarnika in which the actress is seen riding a mechanical horse for a shot. In no time, people started attacking her on social media and questioned her acting ability. While Kangana has kept mum yet, veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher came to her rescue and defended her through his tweet.
Taking to Twitter, Anupam Kher wrote, “How much venom this man has against a self made actress #KanganaRanaut!! This is called ‘acting’ idiot. Actors all over the world do that. That is their job. She will be remembered for decades for her hard work in movies. While you got your fifteen minute fame by using her name.” Actor Paresh Rawal also added to Mr Kher's comment: "According to these dimwits and pinheads they believe that Superman and Batman in Hollywood films are actually flying and it's not some camera trick or computer-generated effects...!"

Not just these veteran actors but filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar who worked with Kanagan Ranaut in the film Fashion also spoke in support of her. In an interview with Pinkvilla, the director said, “I think this is absolutely a non-issue for this kind of thing getting leaked on the social media. Because every actor, they do special effects or they have stunt duplicate which can be used. It is not from now. It is being done from ages. It is not only in India but all over the world. There are a lot of technicalities involved in it. Because of people, they only see from the point of view ke ek Video Leak hua hai. But you have to see the holistic way and whole perspective that why these kinds of things happen. Kangana definitely has rode the horse in the film. But there are close up shots..and you have to take care of that and shoot in that manner also. People don’t understand technicalities about it. There is nothing to mock about it.”

Experience that one glorious chapter from history that led to the triumph of India, with #Manikarnika this 25th Jan: bit.ly/ManikarnikaPromo3 #KanganaRanaut @lokhandeankita @DirKrish @shariqpatel @KamalJain_TheKJ #prasoonjoshi @shankarehsaanloy @zeestudiosofficial @zeemusiccompany #VijeyandraPrasad @shankar.mahadevan @neeta_lulla #ManikarnikaTheQueenOfJhansi #ManikarnikaOn25thJan
He added, “A lot of people who talk about women empowerment, but this is not a way to mock an actress. She is a talented actress and she has carried a film on her shoulders on her own. The film has been appreciated a lot and then suddenly a video comes and people start mocking on social media. I personally feel there is no issue to it. Because this doing stunts or doing close up shots on dummy horse and more are used in a lot of film across all Hollywood as well like Lord of the rings and whatever films have been made there also. These things come out sometimes as they are not in the public domain so people don’t understand.”
Talking about Manikarnika, Kangana Ranaut starrer saw the light of the day after a number of controversies. However, after its release, the film raked in over 100 crores in just two weeks.
