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!

Angel Has Fallen witnesses Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) on the verge of becoming the head of the Secret Service when an assassination attempt nearly kills President Trumbull and implicates Mike as the man responsible. Desperate to uncover the truth, he turns to some unlike allies to help clear his name, keep his family from harm and save the country from imminent danger.

Producer Les Weldon, who has been with the Fallen series from the start, loves that as Banning is put under crushing pressure, it gives Gerard Butler more room to dive deep. Weldon united with fellow producers Butler, Alan Siegel, Matt O’Toole, John Thompson and Yariv Lerner for this installment. All were excited to see Butler bring a darker, harder edge to the beloved character while showing a new vulnerability—and keeping all the fun intact.

Watch the trailer of Angel Has Fallen:

“From the beginning, Mike Banning has been almost an extension of Gerry. They’re both dedicated, demanding guys, yet both have a really personable, emotional core,” observes Weldon. “That comes out even more in Angel Has Fallen and I think audiences will really connect with him. It’s very revealing to watch an incredible hero you’ve always seen chasing others, become the chased and desperate man.”

Angel Has Fallen also stars Morgan Freeman, Jada Pinkett Smith, Lance Reddick, Tim Blake Nelson, Piper Perabo, Nick Nolte and Danny Huston. The movie is directed by Ric Roman Waugh from a script by Robert Mark Kamen, and Ric Roman Waugh. For more news and updates from the world of showbiz stay tuned to CineBlitz!

When it comes to music tracks, the makers of Dream Girl are on a huge roll with it. After calming our nerves with a fun-filled music track like ‘Dil Ka Telephone’ and getting us into the festive mood with ‘Radhe Radhe’, the film’s director revealed that they will be welcoming the festival Ganesh Chaturthi with their yet another music track ‘Dhagala Lagli Kala’ which is a recreation of the original Marathi song and the makers are planning to give their interesting take on it.

While giving insights about the music track, Raaj shares, “Dhagala Lagli Kala is a classic, iconic song and we have danced to its tune for years. It is peppy, groovy and compels you to shake a leg. It was Ekta’s (Kapoor, producer) idea to recreate this popular foot-tapping number with the Ganpati festival being around the corner. We loved the idea, and feel that as a promotional track, it will widen the scope of the film beyond communities. Our first song, Radhe Radhe, celebrates the spirit of Janmashtami and this one releasing during Ganeshotsav will pump up the festivities.”

Video of Radhe Radhe song:

The director further says, “This song has a different vibe and it’s got amazing Marathi parts, which has a rap-like melody that we have sung ourselves. It has got amazing catchy Marathi beats and we have also added some live guitars as well as electronic programs around it. It has ‘let’s dance’ written all over it. And I think this will be the biggest welcome for Ganesh Chaturthi in terms of music.”

No doubt that this music track is going to be loved by all the fans, as the song Dhagala Lagli Kala has just not been a song, but also an emotion for the youth as it has been a part of fans lives in their childhood and teen years. The makers will be giving the youth the best nostalgia by giving it a dash of live guitars and electronic programs which would make the song even more dynamic.
