Arjun Rampal’s Daddy, which will release on September 8, has now run into trouble.
Mid-Day reports that a producer, Mandar Dalvi, has claimed that Rampal owes him a sum of Rs. 2 crores, and that Rampal’s production house Kundalini Entertainment has reneged on a contract to hire Dalvi’s crew to shoot the film.
A complaint has been filed in a police station in Bandra, Mumbai. A senior police officer told Mid-Day, “The FIR was registered on August 22 under Sections 406 and 420 of IPC and Section 63 of the Copyright Act.” However, neither side has confirmed the news.
Earlier, Silverscreen reported that Rampal had delayed the release of the film, in order to allow Arun Gawli, a Mumbai gangster on whom the film is based on, to attend the release. Gawli is currently in jail and was to be released on parole in September. Rampal had met Gawli in prison, in a secret meeting which was later leaked to the press. The police authorities questioned Rampal, but no charges were filed.
However, it is now reported that Gawli will be denied bail, and therefore will not be attending the premier of the film.
