Sonu Sood: Controversies

Sonu Sood landed in a controversy after Producer Sheetal Talwar filed a fraud case against him. As per Sheetal, Sood lent him a property in Yari Road, Mumbai citing that it was free of any legal dispute, but it wasn't.

Sonu Sood landed in another controversy after he stepped out of the film 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.' Kangna alleged him of leaving the film as Sood was not ready to work with a female director. To this, Sonu Sood stated that Kangana is a dear friend and she will always remain one but this constant playing the woman card, the victim card and making this entire issue about male chauvinism is ridiculous. The gender of the director is not an issue. Competence is. Let’s not confuse the two. I’ve worked with Farah Khan who’s a competent woman director and Farah and I had a great professional equation and we are still best of friends. That’s all I would like to say.
