Being praised by the audiences and the critics all over the internet, a video surfaced a few days back which showcased Kangana – The great horse Rider, Behind the scenes of Manikarnika.
The actress is seen riding a mechanical horse and shouting her army to fight the Britishers. Her army is seated on real horses while Kangana is seen riding a mechanical horse which moves on a track and the scene hilariously depicted Kangana’s riding skills. When many Twitter users started trolling Kangana for her “hard work” of riding horseback, some fans strongly defended Kangana and her actions.

The film was directorial of Krish Jagarlamudi initially, and Kangana took over the direction of movie herself after some time and the directorial credit is shared between both. Hence, the directorial team of Krish Jagarlamudi has strongly objected the trolls and clarified the facts behind the use of a mechanical horse.
In this particular scene #KanganaRanaut almost risked losing her life.If she would have fallen survival was impossible as she was being followed by 500 horses trained for 20 days to gallop to a certain point.They would haven’t stopped even after anybodys fall pic.twitter.com/UQSpe0Usly

Rangoli Chandel, sister of Kangana also pointed towards the VFX and other visual effects used in other such periodic drama movies where no one leaked any videos and trolled the actors!! She also clarified that in Hollywood action sequences, the mechanical horse is used. Or in some movies entirely VFX plays the role and the actor has nothing much left to do. However, when it comes to Kangana, nobody comes to support her and instead starts trolling her for using Hollywood technologies in the movie to deliver enhanced scenes which can engage viewers.
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.

Many fans of the actress have also come out in open and have slammed the trollers’ mouth shut with their supportive posts. They have also clarified that the Queen actress didn’t want to force the poor animal as the close up shots are required to be shot again and again. So, she simply used the wooden horse for closer shots to avoid animal cruelty.
