It seems as though Sushant Singh Rajput and Sara Ali Khan’s Kedarnath has been jinxed. The film, directed by Abhishek Kapoor, has faced its share of problems, which just don’t seem to stop. Recently, we told you that the release of the film has been pushed to avoid a clash with Rajnikanth and Akshay Kumar’s 2.0 and will no longer be Sara Ali Khan’s debut film. Simmba will be.
Now, we hear that Kedarnath is in trouble again. An FIR has been filed against Kedarnath producer Prerna Arora of KriArj Entertainment and director Abhishek Kapoor for cheating Anil Gupta of Padma films of Rs 16 crore. Arora’s lawyer said, “We at Kriarj are not only shocked but surprised at these false allegations of having committed offences of cheating and forgery as alleged in the false complaint by Mr Anil Gupta of Padma Ispat. On the strength of this false complaint, we would like to convey to all concerned that any amounts invested with Kriarj by any party including that of Padma Ispat are already being adjudicated by the court of law and consequently there is no room for any such criminal action against Kriarj or its directors. Unfortunately, the police machinery is being misused by all the Parties deliberately twisting a civil cause into a criminal offence only with the objective of either extorting large sums of money from Kriarj or arm-twisting into a surrender of certain rights in its films, by threatening with legal consequences of such false complaints. We at Kriarj whilst taking strong exception to these arm-twisting methods, convey it in clear terms to all concerned that neither Kriarj nor any of its Directors are going to succumb to these arm-twisting attempts to extortion from Kriarj. Due process of law is being followed to counter these false allegations. Further, it needs to be clarified once and for all that Ms Prerna Arora has no concern or interest of any nature whatsoever with Kriarj and consequently has been wrongly dragged into this controversy.”
We wish this film sees the light of the day very very soon!
