Recently, comedian Sunil Pal has posted a video on his Facebook page. In this, he slams ‘Mubarakan’ director Anees Bazmee over non-payment of dues.
Sunil starts off the video by greeting Anees with sarcastic remarks and goes on to describe the whole saga. He claims that Anees had disrespected ‘artists like him’.
In three-minute-seventeen-second long video, Sunil mentions how he was requested by Anees and his partner Mayur Barot to perform at a family function and was denied his remuneration after he performed at the occasion. Even after threatening with a police complaint, Anees didn’t budge, Sunil added.

Sunil Pal told SpotboyE.com: “I have known Anees Bazmi for the past one and a half years. I often used to approach filmmakers for work and that time Anees Bazmi requested me to do this show. And then he told me in that we’ll work together. He had promised to give me Rs 51,000. Then after that he went to abroad for the shoot of Mubarakan and then they stopped taking my calls. His chela Mayur Barot used to answer the call and fool me. He used to make such excuses like. ‘Cheque is almost ready just the signature remains’ and what not!”
“Then Anees called me to meet him and asked me to forget about the money. When I warned him that I will take legal action, he said, ‘Tumhey jo karna hai kar lo!’ This continued for 6-7 months and he was very rude to me,” added Pal.
