Sonu Sood quits ‘Manikarnika’ after alleged fight with Kangana Ranaut

Kangana, however, has slammed reports of a showdown. She said, “When I never met him, never directed him, when did I have this showdown?”

Queen of controversies Kangana Ranaut is in headlines again and this time for an alleged fight with actor Sonu Sood.

Yes, Sonu, who was playing a pivotal role in the movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, has quit following a showdown with the actress.

Kangana, however, has slammed reports of a showdown. She said, “When I never met him, never directed him, when did I have this showdown?”

In a statement, she 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 at his request. Even though the team suggested that they have full faith in me, it seems, Sonu had neither dates nor faith.”

Kangana 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?”

Whereas Sonu Sood’s spokesperson in a statement said, “Sonu has always been a thorough professional and honoured all his commitments. He had informed the makers of Manikarnika about his dates and schedule well in advance. Inconveniencing the team of his current film, to accommodate the demands of another are against his professional principles. Sonu has taken the higher road ahead and wishes the team of Manikarnika all the best.”

On the other hand, the film’s producer Kamal Jain insists that Sonu Sood’s departure from Manikarnika is mutual.

Well, now we wonder will this controversy will take an ugly turn just like Hrithik’s? Only time will tell.
