Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is in the news since its inception. Right from Kangana's first look to the latest poster, the period drama has managed to grab the attention of the audience with its appealing visual. Though today, a surprising news came out that Sonu Sood, who plays a pivotal part in the film has walked out of the film. The actor had shot his entire chunk and was just left with the patchwork scene. But due to his new look for the ongoing film Simmba, the actor was not able to give tentative dates.
Kangana revealed to a portal, "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."
She further explained that Zeeshan Ayyub has now come onboard as the replacement for Sonu Sood. She said, "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?"
Apparently, the makers have now decided to reshoot all the shots of Sonu Sood with Zeeshan Ayyub. But will it affect its release date at the box office? Well, as per our sources, who are close to the film revealed that they are not reshooting a major chunk as of now it's just patchwork that's happening now. The film will release as per the schedule, which is January 25. That means the great clash between Super 30, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Thackrey and Cheat India is still on.
