Troubled times for director Abhishek Kapoor, as his producers KriArj films have now gone to the High Court in Mumbai against him, for failing to comply with his commitments regarding the film Kedarnath.
KriArj has now issued a statement through their lawyer Lavin C Hirani which reads: “In response to the various bogus statements and slanderous/defamatory material being circulated in the media by GITS(Abhishek Kapoor’s production company Guy In The Sky Pictures) against KriArj it 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 that KriArj has complied with all its commitments as per their understanding with AK / GITS.As I understand there have been several serious defaults by GITS of it’s duties and obligations towards KriArj including 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. Inspite of the above KriArj provided its unconditional support to GITS and continued to make huge investments in the Film till it was realised that the amounts were not being used for the right purposes. KriArj has tried to salvage the situation with GITS several times including making multiple efforts to resolve issues to no avail. KriArj , TSeries and Balaji are the rightful owners of the Film as its co producers and therefore GITS has no rights to oust KriArj out of the Film and out of it’s 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 Hon’ble Court.”
Abhishek Kapoor remained unavailable for comment.
