‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ have attracted many controversies already and now there is another breaking news for the film. Sonu Sood, who was playing one of the pivotal roles in the movie had to quit.
Earlier the director, Krish, had to quit for a while as the director was busy shooting for another film with NTR Jr. and now with Sonu Sood quitting the film, it seemed like a showdown for the magnum-opus.
A reliable source from Bollywood Hungama said, "Yes, Sonu has left the film. He is no longer a part of ‘Manikarnika’. And he has informed the film’s producers of his decision. He took a lot of crap from a person who feels she knows how to direct a film without any real qualification to do so. But finally, when Kangana Ranaut officially took over the direction, Sonu could take it no more. He quit the film.”
She further falsed all those rumours about the actor leaving the film and said "Sonu and I haven't even met since the last shot with Krish (director) last year. He is busy filming Simmba. He couldn't even give us tentative dates to match combinations with other actors. The producers showed him the film and writers narrated the patchwork to him...he refused to meet me ...he vehemently denied to work under a woman director..... which is kind of amusing because Sonu is a dear friend and I have even launched the music of a film that he produced on his request..... even though the team suggested that they have full faith in me, it seems, Sonu had neither dates nor faith."
The ‘Queen’ actress added, "And when I last spoke to him he suggested that I can go ahead with someone else and when I narrated the script to Zeeshan Ayyub, he called the studio and gave the dates. By that time it was too late as Zeeshan gave me dates for September. Now, I hear I had a showdown with him..... when I never met him, never directed him ..... when did I have this showdown?"
Kangana then cleared that none of the scenes shot with Sonu Sood can be used anymore and said, "Yes, none of the portions he has shot before will be used because he has spiked hair with gel in his hair (for Manikarnika)..so the new team of DOP and editors and our writers of Manikarnika have discarded those scenes so I have to shoot all of that anyway so it’s easy to get another actor on board. Who keeps spiked hair for a period film?"
