The director of Priyanka Chopra-starrer “Jai Gangaajal” has landed in legal trouble over alleged fraud and cheating.
The co-producer of the film has filed a police complaint against its director Prakash Jha’s production company, alleging fraud and cheating. Jha co-produced “Jai Gangaajal” under the banner of Prakash Jha Productions.
“In a breach of the MoU filed between us for ‘Jai Gangaajal’, we are yet to receive the master copy of the film which is causing losses to our production house as we are not able to execute any commercial deals or sell satellite rights to any TV channel in the absence of the original copy,” said a source of the Play Entertainment.
Play Entertainment has cited another collaboration with Jha, the Arshad Warsi-starrer “Fraud Saiyaan”, though the agreement was to grant all copyrights to the company, the copyright of sound recording of the film was sold to another music firm.
A top official of Jha’s company has said the allegations are baseless adding that the case has been filed with an intention to gain cheap publicity. – CINEWS
