Mumbai: Actors Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan, who have been engaged in a public war of words over their alleged affair, will battle it out at the box office as their films are scheduled to hit the cinema houses in January next year.
Kangana’s one of the most ambitious projects “Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi” is set to clash with Hrithik’ “Super 30” on January 25, 2019.
“Manikarnika” was apparently set to release this year in April and was later pushed to August 15 and then to September.
But today, Zee Studios and the film’s producer Kamal Jain took to Twitter that it would release during the Republic Day weekend.
Directed by Krish, the film will see the “Queen” star in the role of Rani Laxmibai.
Hrithik’s “Super 30”, helmed by Vikas Bahl, is a biopic on Patna-based mathematician Anand Kumar, who trains a batch of 30 aspiring IIT candidates every year.
The two actors have been at loggerheads since the time Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her “silly ex” in an interview in 2016. Their feud turned nasty after they slapped legal notices on each other.
