Just after the film’s first teaser has released, Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Simran’ is facing a real tough time. Film’s writer Apurva Asrani has come up with serious allegations over the actress and film’s director Hansal Mehta.
Lately the poster of the film was launched and then the teaser appeared, featuring Kangana Ranaut as ‘additional story and dialogue writer’ in the film. While, film’s writer Apurva Asrani has another story to tell us. The award-winning filmmaker, film editor, and screenplay writer reveals the bitter truth related to his work credits in the film.
Asrani, in his recent Facebook post revealed that he feels completely sidelined by Kangana and Hansal Mehta, he did not received his due credit as a writer in the film.
In fact, when the poster of the film was released, he also took to Twitter and mentioned he has no issues with Kangana’s name being featured above him in the poster. The problem, however, is the fact that the actress has been gossiping about his work and asserting that she had curated the whole screenplay from one-line narration and made a fun film out of a dark rough narrative.
Apurva has also damned about how Kangana has been purportedly giving interviews to media, telling people that she has curated the screenplay along with Mehta.
In a fiery Facebook post, the writer quoted –
“While it is demeaning for any writers name to be pushed after an additional writing credit, I want to bring to your attention that it’s not the ‘credits’ that irk me so much. There is something bigger that I notice, something that I cannot make sense of.
Ms Ranaut has been claiming in several interviews that Hansal Mehta, the director of Simran, approached her with just a one line screenplay of the film. She says that they story was dark & gritty thriller at that stage and that she herself developed it into a light, fun film.
This completely discredits me and my efforts, and I have to call out this lie at the cost of so many of her fans turning against me. Those that know me will know that I have always strived for the truth, and that is more important to me than a hit film”
Seems that there are many questions to be answered by Hansal and Kangana herself. Before it’s release, the negative news doing rounds over the internet can severely damage film’s earning and director’s image.
