Controversies :

  • A fraud case was filed against him by producer Sheetal Talwar as he lent him a certain property in Yari Road, Mumbai on the condition that it was free of any legal dispute , but it wasn’t.
  • Sonu Sood attracted controversy after he stepped out of the Bollywood film, Manikarnika : The Queen Of Jhansi. When the Bollywood actress, Kangana Ranaut alleged him of leaving the film because he was not willing to work with a female director, Sonu said, “Kangana is a dear friend and she will always reamin one but this entire issue about male chauvinism is ridiculous. The gender of the director is not the issue. Competence is. Let’s not confuse the two. I have 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.
