A clapperboard from the sets of Kangana Ranaut’s next feature Manikarnika has taken the social media by storm, mostly because it bears the actor’s name in the "director" column.
This when the movie is said to be directed by Krish Jagarlamudi.
Kangana's representatives were quick to post a clarification on the actor’s official Instagram page, saying the clapperboard mentions her as the director "to avoid confusion".
"Kangana Ranaut has stepped in to shoot just the patchwork on his (Krish) behalf while he fulfils his commitments in another movie," the statement read, adding that it was done to ensure the movie releases on January 25.

The clapboard is merely to avoid on set confusion
