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.
