Sonu Sood and all of his sudden departure from the movie Manikarnika was a great surprise for the audience and as well as the team. The reason why Sonu opted out of the film was his looks as he was required to be cleanly shaven in Manikarnika while he was also shooting for Simmba where beard look was needed. Thus he had to go for one option because of the looks conflict.
Sonu explained to IANS in an interview, “Not being a part of Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi will always bother me. I will always miss that whole experience of shooting for the film because the film was very special to me.”
The dashing and smart Sonu added, “Sometimes things are not meant to happen and I was not meant to be part of Manikarnika. I just want to wish the team all the best. I am sure everyone has worked really hard on the film and film has to do well for every individual associated with the film.”
Although conjectures were made that all is not well between the two, Sonu made sure he was in good terms with Kangana and wished her luck for the movie, “She has always been a very close friend and I have no qualms against her. I would like to wish her all the best.”
When the 45-year-old actor was asked on working together, the actor said, “I don’t know whether we will be a part of a script which can justify both of us. As actors, we both are demanding. If something has to happen, I think God has to plan some really great script to make this happen.”
On the work front, Sonu was part of the Rohit Shetty’s directorial movie Simmba and the movie has turned out to be a Box Office blockbuster.
