Krish, the original director of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, was ousted from the set after Kangana Ranaut took over the reins. While it was said Krish had left because he had prior commitments, we hear that he was not allowed to come on the set. And not everyone was happy with this decision. Sonu Sood, who was part of the original cast, stepped away from the film after this! Kangana went on to allege that Sonu had walked out of Manikarnika because of her being a female director. But Sonu cleared the reports by saying it was difficult to work with two directors on film.

Talking about it in more details, Sonu Sood revealed to us exclusively, “I’ve worked with Farah Khan, she was a female director and one of my best friends. So generally people who know that, know it’s not true that I walked out because of Kangana being a female director. When you have worked with a director for 45 days and you see him working so hard on a script, and then to suddenly see that the director is not allowed on the set. And an actor wants to direct the movie, it is very heartbreaking, for all the actors on the sets. Suddenly you have to listen to someone else. And suddenly someone wants to mould a film according to his/her view.”

It obviously changed the dynamics of the whole cast and team in a negative way. Sonu iterated, “I wanted my director back on the set. Almost two-and-a-half years of his life he gave to this movie. And suddenly, I cannot report to a new director. As an actor I won’t ever be able to do that.” So that’s the reason from the horse’s mouth. Not everybody would say it upfront as it is. But Sonu is pretty clear about his reasons for walking out of the film. What is your take on this new development? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Malakia Arora took to Instagram recently posting some pictures of her summer night rendezvous with her girl gang led by Kareena Kapoor Khan. Looked like the girls were enjoying a late night terrace party. The post with Kareena was captioned: “Summer nights…… #bebo♥️#ammusterrace”. The second post saw the duo with some of their friends with the caption “Summer nights …. terrace nights #bebo#ammusrerrace”.

The two seemed to be almost twinning in jeans-and-tank-top ensembles with Kareena wearing a pair of distressed denims and a black Adidas bodysuit, paired with black heels. Malaika took a more retro spin on the classic pairing and wore long bell-bottom jeans and a red Gucci bodysuit. The two looked glamorous as ever as they posed together.

Ajay Devgn feels ‘singled out’ after Tanushree Dutta – Rangoli Chandel lash out – read official statement

After Tanushree Dutta’s open letter, Ajay Devgn feels he is being targeted

Ajay Devgn

Tanushree Dutta talking about Ajay Devgn and his choice of working with Alok Nath even after knowing that he was called out in the wake of the #MeToo movement in India has dominated the headlines since yesterday (April 18). Today (April 19), Ajay Devgn issued a statement regarding the same. While on it, he also expressed his grief about people trying to single him out as being insensitive.

Ajay Devgn who will next be seen in De De Pyaar De, issued a statement this morning and cleared the air around the accusations of helping Alok Nath make a comeback to the industry. According to him, his stand is very clear and he still won’t support anyone who cannot respect women. At the same time he also expressed how sad he feels about people trying to single him out, and said, “

When the entire #MeToo Movement happened, I along with many of my film industry colleagues categorically expressed that I respect every single woman at the work place and I would not stand for any unfairness or atrocity against them.  Nothing about my stand has changed.

“Coming to the question of having worked with Mr Alok Nath in my upcoming film De De Pyar De, here I must put certain things in perspective.

“This film was supposed to be an October 2018 release. The shoot of the film got over by last September. The portions with Mr. Alok Nath were canned by August in Manali. The said portions were shot over 40 days across various sets and an outdoor location with a combination of over 10 actors. By the time the allegations came out (in October 2018) the actors in the film including me had already started work on other films.  It would be near impossible to get all the dates and combinations of the several actors in the film and attempt a re-shoot with some other actor replacing Mr Nath. It would also have been a huge monetary loss for the producers.  Everyone is aware that film-making is a collaborative process.  The decision to replace Mr Alok Nath could never have been mine alone. In this case, I would have to go with the joint-decision of the entire unit.  Not to forget, I could not have brought the entire combination of actors back or put up sets again for a 40-day re-shoot because this would mean doubling the budget, which again wasn’t my call to make.  It would have to be the call of the makers. Had circumstances played out even slightly differently, I would have pushed for a different combination of actors. Unfortunately, this was not to be.”

“I reiterate I am extremely sensitive to the #MeToo movement. But when circumstances are beyond me, I don’t see why an attempt is being made to `single’ me out as being insensitive. This is untrue.”

About having an option to replace Alok Nath, according to Ajay the shooting of the film was already done in September and the accusations were made in October. As it was a cast of 10 people it was impossible to bring them together and reshoot with someone else.

Alok Nath was accused of rape and sexual harassment by writer Vinta Nanda during the #MeToo movement. For more updates and gossip about Bollywood, stay tuned to CineBlitz.
