Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi — Why Sonu Sood walked out of Kangana Ranaut's period drama

Sonu Sood's sudden exit from Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi continues to pique audience interests. In a recent interview, the actor opened up about the issues and cleared the air around the controversies. The actor stated that the sole reason he withdrew form the project because of re-scheduling and date issues.

The actor stated that once things did not go well between the director and Kangana Ranaut (who plays the lead), it was apparent that there were re-shoots required. The actor mentioned that he had requested the shots to be shown to him so that he may have a clear idea. "But when I saw the film I felt the way it was edited, the scenes that we shot in the film were missing in the film and it really disturbed me that you put so much of hard work shooting those scenes and when I ask for those they said we want to reshoot some portions of the movie,” added Sood.

This report stands contrary to the plethora of reports which stated that Sood staged a walk-out owing to Kangana's bossy attitude on sets.

Sonu's withdrawal from Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi was followed by actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub taking on his role of Sadashivrao Bhau in the period drama.

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is slated to hit theatres on 25 January.
