Just when Kangana Ranaut would have thought that the world had forgotten about her professional as well as personal split with good friend and mentor Sanjay Dutt, the chapter has opened all over again, courtesy Ram Gopal Varma. The filmmaker has now revealed without mincing any words that it was on Dutt's insistence that he had moved Kangana out of DEPARTMENT and that he had a 'horrible time working with Dutt'. This was in reaction to claims from Dutt that he could see DEPARTMENT failing due to the new technique (using 5D cameras) being adopted to shoot the film.

''Kangana is busy working on SHOOTOUT AT WADALA and just wants to move on now. That's the reason why she is not even commenting on the issue,'' says an insider who has been closely following Kangana's progress.
However Ramu doesn't seem to be in a similar forgiving mood and has come with full guns blazing. Reacting to claims of Dutt and his Business Manager Dharam Oberoi that 'Ramu doesn't listen' and 'they don't intend to work with him ever again', the maverick filmmaker has hit back strongly and also challenged them to make a better film with ZILLA GHAZIABAD and Soham Shah's next.
Now this pretty much spells death kneel to relationship between Ramu and Sanju. A pity because just days before the film's release the director had said, ''Sanjay is fantastic in DEPARTMENT. He is in the same mode as I would want to see a hero as. Sanjay in DEPARTMENT is what audience like about him on the big screen.''
Guess this would be the last good thing one would hear him say this about the actor. As for Kangana, she may well find herself walking into a Ramu project soon, now that she has one more supporter to help her cause after the Dutt fall out.
