Just yesterday we wrote how Sonakshi Sinha opted out of Anees Bazmee’s upcoming sequel of 2007’s hit Welcome, as she had too many projects on her plate. But looks like Sona could be facing a tough time juggling all her projects after her manager Zahid Khan has apparently walked out on her.
There are several speculations about the exact reason why Zahid opted out. Rumours are rife that Zahid wanted the actress to opt for more performance-based roles rather than signing run-of-the-mill romantic films.
A source says, “Zahid had expressed his displeasure about Sona’s choice of roles. Finally, he had no choice but to move out.”
Industry insiders say that Reshma Shetty, who manages Salman Khan, might be roped in to handle Sona’s platter of work. Given her proximity to Sallu, it’s no wonder that Reshma’s name has popped up soon after Zahid’s exit.
However, a friend of the Sinha family says that Sona’s mom Punam was worried that Zahid was unable to cope up with the slew of work that has been coming her way, since he was also handling Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s work.
Sonakshi and Zahid remained unavailable for comment.
