As per a report in PTI, Asrani was earlier sacked as the editor of the film by director Hansal Mehta.
Mumbai: The new poster of ‘Simran’ credits Kangana Ranaut as the ‘additional story and dialogue writer’ which has not gone down well with Apurva Asrani, the writer of the film.
Asrani features as the ‘story, screenplay and dialogue writer in the poster but his credit appears after Kangana’s.
While the writer does not mind Kangana being named as the ‘additional dialogue writer’, he is not happy that she is also sharing the credits as co-writer.
The film is directed by Hansal Mehta who has previously worked with Apurva in critically acclaimed films like ‘Shahid’, ‘CityLights and ‘Aligarh’.
Apurva Asrani took the Facebook route to share his disagreement on Kangana being credited as the co-writer of ‘Simran.’
He also wrote that how he is disappointed with the fact that Kangana has been claiming in her interviews that Hansal Mehta approached her with a one line screenplay of the film, and further went on to claim that the film was a gritty thriller then and it’s she who converted it into a light-hearted film.
