Sara Ali Khan has just stepped in Bollywood and is likely to have two releases this year. However, it seems the actress has landed in trouble due to her debut film Kedarnath. As we all know, after shooting a major part of the film, Kedarnath has landed in various troubles and the shooting was halted for the same.
Well, amidst all this, Sara bagged another project in Karan Johar’s Simmba opposite Ranveer Singh. The makers also announced it officially on the social media.
But now, there are reports that Sara has allocated the dates- June & July- to Kedarnath and Simmba both.
The makers are reportedly unhappy with Sara and have decided to sue her. The duo has filed a legal case, which saw Gattu and Madhu Mantena at the Bombay High Court today. A vacation bench headed by Justice S J Kanthawalla at Bombay High Court heard Abhishek’s plea. The next hearing is on Tuesday.
When advocate Hitesh Jain was contacted who represented Abhishek Kapoor and Ronnie Screwvalla, he told a leading web portal, “This afternoon, the makers of Kedarnath and Simba were given the option to resolve the matter between themselves in court in presence of Justice Kanthawalla on Tuesday at 9.45 am, which in turn would have seen no lawyers arguing with each other. But Karan and Rohit have informed that they won’t attend court- which in turn will see myself and Ameet Naik putting our points across and fighting it out.”
According to the advocate, Screwvalla offered Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty that he would wind up Sara’s portions in Kedarnath by June 30 and then she could start shooting with them from July onwards.
The source further revealed, “But we were told that the Simmba makers were not ready to compromise. We even gave them a proposal of giving us just 10 days in June from June 10-19 followed by June 22, 25 and 28- but to no avail.”
Hitesh Jain further explained, “Kedarnath shoot is in Mumbai, while Simmba is out of town. Sara had given the dates till 15 July. What is the sanctity of such contracts then?”
“It’s a very interesting case, it will set a benchmark. The judge also asked today that what is the problem if Sara goes to Simmba shoot in July, since that film has not yet begun. Sara phans gayi hai uske talent management company ne usko phansa Diya Hai. ”
Added Jain, “Sara will have to cough up Rs 5 crore if she chooses to go to the Simmba set before completing Kedarnath.”
Well, Sara has definitely landed in a big trouble as both her films Simmba and Kedarnath have given her serious tension!
