Well, this just keeps getting better! After Shilpa Shinde claiming that she was tortured by the channel and production house, Edit II, the production house responsible for Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai! has come out with their side of the story, which is quite contrary to the actor’s claim.
In a statement by Binaifer Kohli from Edit II, she said:
Shilpa has been in breach of the contractual terms by reporting late for shoots, ordering her own costumes while there was a designated leading designer and arm twisting us to pay for the same. We have been giving into all her demands even though such demands are contrary to the terms of the agreement she has entered into with us. However, her demands have not ended here. She now wants to us to allow her to take up projects on competing channels. When it was pointed out that the contract clearly stated an ‘exclusivity clause’ she stated that she never had the intention of adhering to terms of exclusivity. Post this incident, she has been threatening to quit the show if we do not waiver the exclusivity clause.
The production house has also claimed that this is not the first time they’ve put up with her unprofessional attitude, but it has now reached a point where it won’t be tolerated anymore.
Talking about Shilpa’s statements about the channel and production house not treating her well, Binaifer said:
Shilpa has been making several false, baseless and defamatory statements to media about us and the channel and since we have been silent so far it may have been viewed as our weakness. At present she has stopped shooting for the show and has sent us a letter informing us of her migraine issue and asking us to find a replacement soon. If she has stopped shooting with us citing health issue like migraine, then it’s surprising that she is medically fit to consider taking up another show. Since she is the one to repeatedly breach the contract, we have sent across a legal notice to her and we will take necessary actions against her.
Oh, this doesn’t sound too good! We wonder what Shilpa has to say about it!
