Sonu Sood has thrown his hat and walked out of Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, as tensions between him and Kangana Ranaut escalated to a whole new level. Sonu did not like Kangana's alleged high-handedness and bullying on the sets. It is reported that Kangana had several showdowns with many actors and crew members on the sets, which might have irked Sonu Sood and hence he retaliated strongly against the actress by walking away from the shoot. He will not be a part of the movie anymore.
The sad part is that 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi' has now been stalled and the film-makers are gasping for breath as to what to do next, as he has a pivotal role in the film. A source opened up to Bollywood Hungama by saying, "Yes, Sonu has left the film. He is no longer a part of Manikarnika. And he has informed the film's producers of his decision. He took a lot of crap from a person who feels she knows how to direct a film without any real qualification to do so. But finally, when Kangana Ranaut officially took over the direction, Sonu could take it no more. He quit the film."
Sonu Sood Just Erupted!
"When Kangana gradually took over the project she also wanted Sonu Sood's role to be cut down to size. This was last straw. The normally mild-mannered Sonu just erupted," said the source to Bollywood Hungama.
Kangana Ranaut Took Over As The Director
For the uninitiated, Kangana Ranaut took over the directorial role of the film a week ago and since then, people have questioned her motives as to how can an inexperienced person, who has never directed a film before, take over as a film-maker in the middle of a shoot, in which she's the leading lady.
Would The Producers Give In To Kangana's Demands?
The million dollar question now is, will the producers of Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi just give in to Kangana Ranaut's demands and allow chaos to engulf on the sets? Or will they take action against the high-handedness and bullying and act like professionals, so that other actors and crew can feel comfortable on the sets?
Will It Release On The Scheduled Date?
Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi was scheduled to hit the theatres during Republic Day 2019 and now that the shoot has come to a screeching halt, we have to wait and watch if it will release on the mentioned date or not.
