According to current reports, the movie is making news for all the wrong reasons. First, it was director Krish Jagarlamudi who left the film mid-way to direct the NTR biopic.

Then there was news that actor Sonu Sood who was playing the character of Sadashivrao Bhau walked out from the movie saying,
“I can't work with two directors at the same time.” His statement does bring some speculations as something is not working on the sets of Manikarnika.
And it has given more fuel when actor Swati Semwal also left the shoot midway saying she could not comply with the reshooting schedule.
