Director Krish is a very famous name in the south region cinema and his films like Gautamiputra Satkarni an NTR biopic are definitely some of the best works of the director. Krish also had made film Gabbar Is Back starring Akshay Kumar and Shruti Haasan in the leading roles. He was supposed to be the director of Manikarnika but after shooting a heavy part of the film, he made exit from the project for shocking reasons.
Now when the film Manikarnika has been released so the director has finally opened up why he chose to not continue directing the project. Krish told in a recent interview to SpotBoyE told that it was his differences with Kangana Ranaut that made him left the project in the mid-way.
He said, “Difficult to say. But I think Kangana has done 20-25 per cent of the first half. I didn’t shoot a song and I didn’t shoot her entry scene.”
He added, “In the second half, she has even re-shot some scenes which I had done in a different way. But it’s okay now. The film is looking brilliant. I am happy that she didn’t spoil it much.”
Krish revealed Kangana called him and also shout on him. Krish said, “Kangana even told me that Zee Studios hadn’t liked what I had made. It was looking like a Bhojpuri film. I laughed. People know my previous work. We argued but she wanted her own way. I just couldn’t understand. She is rude all the time,”
“She (Kangana) said Sonu is not required in the second half. But I put my foot down. Big arguments followed. Kamal Jain (one of the film’s producers) took Kangana’s side.” He added.
Krish here also revealed that Kangana was saying lie when she revealed the reason why Sonu Sood didn't do the film. He told, “And yeah, I felt very bad when I read in the papers Kangana saying that ‘Sonu couldn’t take orders from a female director’. That was annoying and bad. It never happened. What she said was untrue. I don’t blame Sonu for quitting. His run time was 100 minutes and it was being chopped to 60 minutes. Who will agree? Nobody would.”
