Cinematographer PC Sreeram on Tuesday revealed that he had rejected a Bollywood film because it had actress Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. His statement comes amid the backlash that Kangana has been receiving for her “Mumbai feels like PoK” remarks.
He tweeted, “Had to reject a film as it had Kangana Ranaut as the lead. Deep down I felt uneasy and explained my stand to the makers and they were understanding. Some times it’s only about what feels right. Wishing them all the best.”
Soon, Kangana responded to his tweet saying, “I missed the opportunity to work with a legend like you sir, it’s entirely my loss, I don’t know what exactly made you uneasy about me but I am glad you took the right call, wish you all the best.”
Meanwhile, Kangana has been given Y-plus category security after there was a war of words between the actress and Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, which followed after the actress said she felt unsafe in Mumbai and said the city seems like ‘Pakistan occupied Kashmir’ to her. She is the first Bollywood actor who will be guarded by CRPF commandos.
