Actress Mishti Chakraborty, who plays Kashibai in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, says she doesn’t believe in the numbers game in the film industry but the trend is such that she feels one can’t help but concentrate on them. She hopes her latest film crosses the Rs 500 crore mark.

Mishti was present at the launch of Dilip Sahu’s Flyking Film Academy. While Manikarnika... got off to a slow start on Friday, it made Rs 18.1 crore on Day 2 on Saturday.
Mishti said: “I don’t believe in numbers being a great deal, but I guess I need to, because that is the trend. We always count a film’s success by numbers, so whether I personally believe in it or not, this is our requirement. I am happy that the film made good money on the first day and I want it to cross Rs 500 crore.

“I am proud to be a part of such a film which has such a noble subject. Rani Lakshmibai resides in every Indian’s heart. So I am really proud that I am part of such a film.”
