Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi trailer was released on Tuesday and received a positive response from most of the viewers. But one connection between Manikarnika and Hrithik Roshan starrer Mohenjo Daro grabbed the attention of many, which might not go down well with the makers of Kangana's film.
The trailer of Manikarnika has some impressive visuals and action sequences. Kangana is being praised for her character, and some have even declared it blockbuster already. But the period drama will have to face big competition from Hrithik's Super 30, which is also slated to be released on the same day of January 25, 2019.
Being released on the same date, comparisons between the two movies are bound to be made, but the common factor that grabbed attention is not due to the release date.
The climax dialogue of Kangana in the trailer is, "Jhansi aap bhi chahte hai aur mein bhi, fark sirf itna hai, aapko raj karna hai, aur mujhe apno ki seva". A similar dialogue was uttered by Hrithik in Mohenjo Daro that said, "Antar hai maham. Tujhe Mohenjo Daro pe raj karna hai, aur mujhe seva."
Some people on social media were quick to spot the similarity and pointed out the same. Considering the past controversy between the two stars, some even said that Kangana is still obsessed with Hrithik, and hence copied this dialogue.
There are a number of comments on Twitter, whereby it is being said that Kangana has not gotten over Hrithik yet, and so she deliberately used the same dialogue.
Irony is dat Kangana has to copy from Hrithik anyways. Be it his flop he it a hit— Bratati (@iBratati_) December 18, 2018
The same dialog was there in Mohenjodaro as well. Baap re baap. Hrithik fascination is still intact.— Premal (@Predesai) December 18, 2018
It is not clear if the dialogue was deliberately copied or it matched co-incidentally, but it is certainly almost same.
