Rani Of Jhansi was earlier titled Rani Laxmibai and was to be directed by Ketan Mehta. He was to collaborate with Kangana over the project. They had many sittings over the last two years.

She wanted to co-direct with Ketan Mehta. That’s when he put his foot down,
Kangana has become increasingly collaborative in the making of her films. During Rangoon, she reportedly had constant arguments with director Vishal Bhardwaj. Rather than face a similar crisis of authority, Ketan opted out.
According to a report from a leading daily, Ketan Mehta was kicked out by Kangana from the movie Rani of Jahsni.
