Kangana Ranaut was all set to do a biopic on amputee mountaineer, Arunima Sinha. Reportedly, Amitabh Bachchan was set to essay the inspirational coach who helps Arunima hold forth in front of all her hurdles. Reportedly, now the latest news suggests that the actress has opted out of the film stating some reasons.
Well, talking about it, a source was quoted saying, “Kangana was having a lot of disagreement on the film for quite some time 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.”
Meanwhile, Kananga’s Manikarnika is all set to hit the screens on 25th January, 2019.
