Kangana Ranaut and Sonu Sood were supposed to be seen in the film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The actor was going to play Sadashiv Rao in the film and had shot for the film earlier. Kangana Ranaut told in an interview to news agency IANS that he left the project mid-way since he didn't want to work under a woman director. Actor Sonu Sood has reacted to actor Kangana Ranaut’s accusations that he didn’t want to work under a female director on Manikarnika. In a recent interview to Hindustan Times, Sonu said the problem isn’t that he doesn’t want to work under a female director but something else. “That was not my statement. I never said that I don’t want to work with a female director because I have already done a movie with a female director (Farah Khan, Happy New Year). I only said I can’t be working with two directors on one set. So I will always maintain that stand and in a span of all these years, whatever films I have done, 80-90 movies, I have worked with one director at a time. So that is my stand and I will always stick to it,” he said.
