Kangana Ranaut is once again on the radar of the left liberals, but this time for some queer reasons. A video of her film ‘Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi’ was leaked on the social media that went viral within hours. In that video, Kangana was seen riding on a mechanical horse for a war sequence of the movie, as shown below:-

However, instead of looking for the reasons behind the same, people started taking digs at Kangana Ranaut. The left liberal bullies, who abhor Kangana, found this as a golden opportunity to ‘exact their revenge’ against her for targeting their hypocrisy. Following are some of the jibes posted by people in an extremely bad taste:-
Modern Jhaansi ki Rani…??

Oh I apologise to you profusely as I haven’t seen that film yet. And as the official national film critic it is my humble duty to write on every film??
By the way, how was the experience of making the film? https://t.co/B8cxq0J1Lh

However, in their over enthusiasm, the left liberals hit the axe on their own foot. Just like the brouhaha on the so called ‘Operation Cobrapost Karaoke’ which has fallen flat on the face, the intellectuals forgot that dummies are a common part of any standard film. Led by Rangoli Chandel, the sister of Kangana Ranaut, a bunch of enlightened citizens called out the bluff as they explained the process of using dummies for certain sequences:-
How else do you take close up on a galloping horse, this is called a machanical horse and used in movies like Gladiator, The last Samurai, Brave heart and Manikarnika ?… only for the close ups ….dumb people get excited to see technology… Dumbos !!! ? https://t.co/ECDDGvZZlr

What they don't understand is that horses are not supposed to do a lot of retakes. It would be animal cruelty and she was shooting a sword wielding scene there. It was a stunt. So they have to take proper care that both horse and #KanganaRanaut don't get injured.

One of the Twitter users, who goes by the handle of @AparnaD86, also hit hard on people for mocking the horse riding skills of Kangana Ranaut as she posted another video of the actress riding a horse with finesse.
This is not the first time that the left liberals have tried to bully Kangana for her bold opinions. In an interview with the spiritual environmentalist Sadhguru, Kangana had hit hard on the left liberals and their disdain for nationalism and Sanatan Dharma. She mentioned that people were persuading her to not include the scene of rescuing a calf in Manikarnika, for the fear of offending the so called left liberals. Not only was she trolled for her opinions, she was also labeled as an opportunist and ‘attention seeker’ for the same. It was another matter altogether that the scene was never trimmed and was a highlight of the movie, which is now a decent box office success.
During the MeToo movement, when Kangana raised her concerns about the safety of the women, it was these very left liberals, led by controversial actress Sonam Kapoor, who raised doubts on her credibility. As such, it comes as no surprise if they tried to shame her using a blooper scene from Manikarnika. However, the way that people have responded to their propaganda, it seems that they’ve stopped taking their lies as it is.
