Troubles seem never ending for actress Kangana Ranaut. After a long debacle with writer Apurva Asrani, now filmmaker Ketan Mehta has sent a legal notice to her.
Mehta sent a legal notice to Kangana for “hijacking” one of his most ambitious film projects, Rani of Jhansi: The Warrior Queen, sources said.
“This is regarding my project called Rani of Jhansi: The Warrior Queen and her (Kangana’s) attempt and the producer Kamal Jain at hijacking the project. Since 2015, I was in contact with Kangana for the project. I was sharing research material and several drafts of the script with Kangana and she was actively participating,” Ketan was quoted as saying in an interview with a leading daily.
“My legal notice says how we have worked on the project for two years and how all of a sudden everything happened. We have asked for the film (Manikarnika) to stop as we plan to go ahead with our project,” the filmmaker added.
Few days ago, writer Apurva Asrani also accused Kangana of stealing the screenplay and the dialogue credit for Mehta’s Simran .
However, the actress is silent on this issue.
