After being hailed as one of the best actresses in the Hindi film industry, Kangana Ranaut is all set to explore other aspects of filmmaking. Kangana has launched her own production house called 'Manikarnika Films', in collaboration with her brother Akshit Ranaut. Her sister Rangoli Chandel stated that Kangana now wishes to work as a producer and director.
Rangoli took to Twitter to share pictures of the inauguration ceremony of 'Manikarnika Films'.
Sharing the pictures she wrote, "Today we inaugurated Kangana's studio, Manikarnika films. Kangana will work as a producer and director and Aksht will look after legal and finance departments he studied film production in New York film academy," (sic).

Rangoli also shared a picture of Kangana's studio which is located in Pali Hill in Mumbai, and a short clip of the interiors of the video.

Congratulatory messages poured in for Kangana from many in the industry. Hansal Mehta, Rajkummar Rao, Kunal Kohli, Taran Adarsh, Madhur Bhandarkar and others wished her the best for her new venture.
Ironically, Manikarnika is the name of the film with which Kangana made a controversial debut as a director. Kangana played the lead in Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi. During filming, Kangana had a public spat with its original director Krish, who left midway. Kangana took the reins from there, and directed the film with Radha Krishna and Jagarlamudi.
