    Apurva Asrani Slams Kangana Ranaut; Says 'Star Hijacking A Film Is The Worst Form Of Hara-kiri'

    Kangana Ranaut's Manikarnika Controversy: Apurva Asrani lashes out | FilmiBeat

    In a cryptic tweet, screenwriter Apurva Asrani took a sly dig at Kangana Ranaut for hijacking a film and described it as 'the worst form of hara-kiri'. Without taking any name, Apurva's tweet alluded to the controversy surrounding the historical-drama Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, which saw Sonu Sood exiting the project.

    "A star hijacking a film and running down the hard work of crew member/s is the worst form of hara-kiri there is. When affected filmmakers cannot control this and instead put on a facade of a 'dignified silence', they allow a monstrous ego to go on a rampage and eventually kill the film," the "Aligarh" writer wrote.


    On Friday, after Sonu announced his departure from the film, Kangana had said that he'd decided to quit the project because she was directing the reshoots and patchwork. In his response, the actor said even though Kangana is a good friend, making the entire issue about male chauvinism is 'ridiculous'. "The gender of the director is not the issue, competence is," he'd previously said, regarding his decision to quit the film.

    Last year, Apurva had alleged that Kangana, who has been credited as additional dialogue and story writer in her last release, Simran, tried to discredit his work in public by saying that she developed the story with director Hansal Mehta from a one-line script. The actor, however, dismissed the claims.
