Sonu Sood’s sudden exit from MANIKARNIKA has created a lot of rift & problems between him and the lead actress of the film Kangana Ranaut. The historical epic based on Jhansi queen created a lot of excitement among the audience ever since its announcement. Kangana who is playing the role of the queen has always seen herself in controversies for her films. Sonu who is also shooting for SIMMBA is running tight with the schedule so it becomes tough to manage two films at a time.
Due to his sudden exit, it is now said that the film will have to be reshot for major portions in a 45-day schedule. As per the reports in a tabloid, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub has been locked as a replacement for Sonu Sood’s character. The 10 days schedule has apparently extended to a 45 days schedule which has cost the producers to spend an additional amount of 20 crores. The 45-day schedule will be spread across three venues — ND Studios in Karjat, Film City, and Kamalistan. The film will retain several sequences from the original cut, especially the ones shot inside the fort. Now that Kangana herself also has stepped in as a director she is taking keen interest and efforts to glitter the film.
