The trailer of Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming movie Manikarnika was released recently. Interestingly, vigilant netizens spotted an uncanny similarity between a scene from the trailer to that of actor Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro. Playing the role of the Queen of Jhansi Laxmibai in the movie, Ranaut exhibits some fierce skills where she can be seen handling the sword, riding the horse and more.
However, the climax scene where the 31-year-old actor says, “Jhansi aap bhi chahte hai aur mein bhi, fark sirf itna hai, aapko raj karna hai, aur mujhe apno ki seva.” (You and I both want Jhansi, however, you want to rule and I want to serve), seemed to be quite similar to the scene from Roshan’s movie. In response to Kabir Bedi’s question in Mohenjo Daro, “Kya antar hai tujh mein aur mujh mein?” Roshan’s character responds, “Antar hai Maham, tu Mohenjo Daro pe raaj karna chahta hai aur main seva.”

The trailer ends with the exact same dialogue that Mohenjodaro trailer ended with. 😂 Looks like Kangana’s obsession for Hrithik hasnt ended yet. pic.twitter.com/rMB6FYINzl

Many noticed the similarity between the two dialogue and wondered whether Manikarnika had picked it up from Ashutosh Gowariker’s 2016 movie. Some also cracked the obvious jokes pointing to the sour relationship between the two actors.
Is Kangana Ranaut’s dialogue in Manikarnika copied from Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro? Great going Kangana, This is sure going to be a hit movie and congratulations on taking up this opportunity and directing the movie midway. Best of luck for your directional venture.

A dialogue in #Manikarnika ‘s trailer is the exact same as what was in #Mohenjodaro (trailer & film)!
Never a nice feeling ☹️🙏
“Farq yeh hai ki tujhe raj karna hai aur mujhe seva!”
Hope it’s a coincidence & so it’s never too late to correct it! Please.

The same dialog was there in Mohenjodaro as well. Baap re baap. Hrithik fascination is still intact.
