The ugly tussle between directorAbhishekKapoorand his producers had just got dense, when now another ugly controversy regarding their filmKedarnathhas emerged.ApparentlyKapoor, no strangerto cast replacement , approachedVickeyKaushal(ofMasaanfame) to replaceSushantwhenSushantrefused toblock any more unused datesforKedarnath.
Saysthe source, Gattu loves to do these replacement act. DuringFitoorhe sacked someone as senior and legendary asRekhaandhad her replaced byTabu.Kedarnathstarted on the wrong foot when he got the cinematographer replaced inthe very first schedule. Thenit wasSushants turn.
Apparently unhappy with Sushants unwillingness to dole out endless datesAbhishekKapooractually approached VickyKaushalto replaceSushant.
Saysthe source, Sushants dates kept getting postponed over andover again.Gattuexpectedhim to just be around at his beck and call.Sushantfinally left forChambalto shootAbhishekChoubeysSonechariya. This pissedoffGattuand he approachedVickyKaushal.
However the producers ofKedarnathintervened and abortedAbhishekkapoors ruinous plans.
This in fact , was one of the issues that eventuated in the current imbrogliobetweenKapoorand his producersKriArjEntertainment. The latter have now issued a statementthrough their lawyerLavinCHiraniwhich reads:“In response to the various bogus statements and slanderous/defamatory material being circulated in the media by GITS(AbhishekKapoors production company Guy InThe Sky Pictures)againstKriArjit may be noted that all such statements/articles are absolutely baseless,bogus,frivolous and without any merit or semblance of truth whatsoever and are hereby totally denied and stand rejected.There is enough material to show thatKriArjhas complied with all its commitments as per their understanding with AK / GITS.As I understand there have been several serious defaults by GITS of its duties and obligations towardsKriArjincluding there being severe delays in the production of the Film which was completely in a mess right from the start of the Film for reasons solely attributable to GITS.Inspiteof the aboveKriArjprovided its unconditional support to GITS and continued to make huge investments in the Film till it wasrealisedthat the amounts were not being used for the right purposes.KriArjhas tried to salvage the situation with GITS several times including making multiple efforts to resolve issues to no avail.KriArj,TSeriesandBalajiare the rightful owners of the Film as its co producers and therefore GITS has no rights to oustKriArjout of the Film and out of its legal rights as producers and owners of the Film.We will be moving the Bombay High Court for enforcing our rights on the Film by early next week and we hope to secure the necessary reliefs from the Honble Court.”
