‘Kizie Aur Manny’: Mukesh Chhabra clears the air about the film’s shoot coming to a halt
It was just today that we came across reports which stated that the shoot of Mukesh Chhabra’s directorial debut, ‘Kizie Aur Manny’ was halted because of Sushant Singh Rajput’s ‘extra-friendly’ behaviour with his co-star Sanjana Sanghi, who is making her debut in Bollywood.
A source close to DNA had revealed, “Sushant was trying to be ‘extra-friendly’ towards newbie Sanjana Sanghi. On one occasion, she seemed to have got uncomfortable and apparently brought it to the notice of her parents, who reportedly told her to return to the set only if she felt she should. One hears that as of now, shooting has come to a standstill.”
However, a spokesperson of the studio that is producing this film, clarified to the daily, “We, as a studio, take the safety of our talent and crew with utmost seriousness. No such incident has happened on our sets and shoot has not been suspended. As a matter of fact, the final schedule of our shoot is on as we speak. We are looking forward to releasing the film in 2019.”
Mukesh Chhabra also took to his Twitter account to clarify on the controversy. He tweeted, “All this speculation is a figment of wild imagination. We are shooting in Mumbai for #KizieऔरManny after wrapping the Jamshedpur and Ranchi schedule. Last mile to go with my lead actors. This has been an absolute joyride and we are cruising ahead like one big happy unit. Our entire cast and crew is committed to making a beautiful film with your continued love and support. On-set as I tweet this! love mukesh chhabra :)”

Now that the director himself has clarified on the matter, we can put all the rumours to rest.
‘Kizie Aur Manny’ is a remake of Josh Boone’s film, ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ and will be releasing next year (2019).
