Pinkvilla has published a blind item about a producer who has refused to clear the dues of a filmmaker after their film flopped.
The movie looked stale, came across as a sequel of a hit franchise but without the chemistry of the two veteran actors who made it popular. The hero too is not known for his comic timing. No wonder the movie flopped. MeToo activists must be happy to see the producer lose big money though. It is rumored that several celebs thought of outing the producer, but nobody actually went ahead with it.
The heroine of the movie in question is raising temperatures with her pics on social media. Her bikini clad pics are hugely popular. She is doing it to get noticed by superstars & filmmakers. Her steady date dumped her after she did not deny an affair with a married A-lister. The married A-lister was rewarding with her with several projects, but the missus put an end to that. She now has to fend for herself in the industry & hence the titillating pics. Another lesser known celeb too was recently seen in a black cleave revealing bikini in videos on social media. That’s what most female stars whose star is on the decline have to resort to, to stay afloat. Some say it is menu card for shady business!
At times, when things don’t always work out in favour of the Bollywood filmmakers and producers when their film hits the screens, the showdown between them might become ugly. Speaking of this, recently going by sources, filmmaker of a recent comedy multistarrer had an ugly tiff with his producer when the latter refused to clear his dues. The multistarrer had a huge star cast with some huge names and also all formulas for a hit were tried including the remake of old classic songs and comedy tadka. However, the film tanked at the box office. According to sources in the film trade, the director of the disastrous film apparently went to meet the producer to collect the rest of his pay.
However, the producer refused to give the remaining payment to the director saying that the film was a disaster and he has lost almost 40 crores due to the failed film. The filmmaker reportedly started abusing him in front of people that were present at the scene. But the producer kept calm. However, despite the ugly showdown, the producer of the comedy film refused the director the remaining payment. Now reportedly, the filmmaker has threatened the producer of the multistarrer that has flopped.
Those who know this filmmaker there was a similar episode with another producer where he is no longer welcome. We also hear that this filmmaker who charged Rs 15 crore for a film will have to take a salary cut. We also hear that the next film offer that he is getting now is just Rs 3 crore. Guess the director of the recent flopped comedy now has no choice but to take it.
