Refuting Kangana's 'claims', Sonu Sood says he's fine with woman-directors
Sonu Sood is no longer a part of Kangana Ranaut-starrer 'Manikarnika - The Queen of Jhansi' and the actor said he decided to leave the project because of scheduling conflicts and not due to the gender of the director. Yesterday, after Sonu announced his exit, Kangana said that he decided to quit the project because she was directing the reshoots and patchwork. Here's more.
Here is what Sonu said in response to Kangana's statement
In his response today, Sonu said even though Kangana is his good friend, making the entire issue about male chauvinism is ridiculous. "Kangana is a dear friend and she will always remain one but this constant playing the woman card, the victim card and making this entire issue about male chauvinism is ridiculous," said the 45-year-old actor.
Have worked with Farah Khan, we've great professional equation: Sonu
"The gender of the director is not the issue, competence is. Let's not confuse the two. I've worked with Farah Khan who's a competent woman director and Farah and I had a great professional equation and we are still best of friends," Sonu said.
Sonu also had problems juggling shoots of 'Simmba' and 'Manikarnika'
Spokesperson of the Sonu had earlier said that Sonu, who is filming Rohit Shetty's 'Simmba', was recently asked to reshoot portions for 'Manikarnika' by Kangana. Sonu is sporting a beard for 'Simmba', but for 'Manikarnika' he was supposed to be clean-shaven. Sonu had asked the makers of 'Manikarnika' to finish the reshoots after he completes his schedule for 'Simmba' but things didn't work out.
