Ever since the first poster of MANIKARNIKA was out on 15 August Sonu Sood and Kangana Ranaut's look garnered good reviews.
However as per reports, Sonu Sood is no more part of historical drama MANIKARNIKA, this issue has been the talk of internt till now and Kangana who is seen as Jhansi of Rani in the film has come out in open and spoken about it.
As reported, Kangana Ranaut confirms Sonu Sood's exit but refutes rumours of a showdown with him and told media that, “When I never met him, never directed him,when did I have this showdown?"
After the discrepancies over the director credits for the movie floated around, now fresh reports suggest that Sonu Sood who was playing a pivotal role in the movie has quit following a showdown with Kangana Ranaut.
Clarifiying her stance Kangana told 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."
However in a statment Sonu Sood said, “Kangana is a dear friend and she will always remain one but this constant playing the woman card , the victim card and making this entire issue abt male chauvinism is ridiculous . The gender of the director is not the issue . Competence is . Let’s not confuse the two . i’ve worked with farah khan who’s a competent woman director and farah and i had a great professional equation and we are still best of friends . That’s all i would like to say."
We wonder who will be repalacing Sonu Sood, Here's wishing Sonu Sood all the very best for his future endevours.
MANIKARNIKA releases on 25 January, 2018.
