Paltan directed and produced by J.P. Dutta released in September 2018. The film stars Arjun Rampal, Jackie Shroff, Gurmeet Choudhary, Sonu Sood and many others.
Well now, even after six months since the film has been released, the production house has to still clear the dues of some actors and crew members of the film.
According to Spotboye, “It has been almost 6 months that the film released— but the producers have not cleared the dues of few actors and even some daily-wage workers. JP Dutta’s daughter Nidhhi had promised to mend the situation as soon as possible but she has not fulfilled her commitment. Whenever we knock at her door, she requests us to come next time and delays the payment.”
Gurmeet Choudhary alleges JP Dutta hasn’t cleared his dues
“Zee Studios, who were involved in the film, have already paid the amount which they had to pay to J P Dutta. So, it is Dutta who has to now pay. But Nidhhi is just not interested in finishing off the issue. On the contrary, she and her mother Bindiya Goswami has blocked Team Paltan almost everywhere so that they don’t get to know of their whereabouts.” source added.
When contacted, Nidhhi Dutta said, “This is not true. As per the agreement, everyone has been paid their dues.” Added Nidhhi, “Maybe you should get some proof before carrying a story against one of the most reputed banners of the industry.”
However, when film actor Gurmeet Choudhary was asked about the same, he said, “My staff and I haven’t received our payments.”
The report also mentions that actors Siddhant Kapoor and Luv Sinha have also not received their payment. However, the actors refused to confirm about it.
