EXCLUSIVE: Kangana Ranaut walks out of Arunima Sinha biopic

Changes in film casting is always a predominant factor in Bollywood. Yeh to hota hi rehta hai. But sometimes, the reasons behind the changes are extremely weird. Such is the case with this new project that was supposed to bring Kangana Ranaut and Amitabh Bachchan on screen together for the first time.

The project in question is the biopic on amputee mountaineer Arunima Sinha who was the first one to climb Mount Everest despite her physical disability. Kangana was all set to play the lead with Big B essaying the inspirational coach who helps Arunima hold fort in front of all her hurdles. But now, Kangana has walked out of the project.

A source says, “Kangana was having a lot of disagreement on the film for quite sometime now. She and the makers weren’t on the same page. This will be her second biopic after Manikarnika so she wanted it to be made on a more lavish scale, with lot of VFX and effects. Plus, she wanted a huge price of Rs 11 crore from the producers who refused to budge from their RS 4 crore bargain. All in all, it didn’t seem feasible and so Kangana decided to opt out. Big B is still in discussion for the film but hunt for the new leading lady is on.”

Stay tuned for more update on this film.

Meanwhile, Kangana’s next ‘Manikarnika’s trailer is being praised by critics and audiences alike. The movie releases on 25th January, 2019.
