Kangana Ranaut accused of bullying on the sets of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi
Seems like Kangana Ranaut loves the spotlight and cannot stay away from making headlines. The actor has seemingly turned director for her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
According to the Indian media, Kangana has stepped into the director’s shoes to complete the film that has already been shot mostly. The rumour started circulating when a picture of clapboard from the sets displaying Kangana’s name in place of director Krish Jagarlamudi went viral.
It has been reported that the real reason behind this is not that Jagarlmundi is busy, but Kangana’s constant interference that annoyed the director so much that he left the project.
It has also been reported that one of Kangana’s co-stars in the film, Sonu Sood, has walked out of the project after claiming that he was bullied by her.
Kangana in a statement said that Sonu has been busy shooting for Simmba and doesn’t have dates to reshoot for portions of the period drama. She also said that Sonu had “denied” working under a woman director.
However, the actor’s spokesperson stated, “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.”
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi releases on January 25, 2019.
