Diya Aur Baati Hum actress Deepika Singh was reportedly slapped with a fine of 16 Lakhs by her producers, Shashi and Sumeet. According to SpotboyE, the producers owe her a payment of Rs. 1.14 crores, but have instead demanded 16 lakhs from her for reporting late on the sets.
A source told the online publication that Deepika was indeed late to the sets, but that was due to her co-star Anas Rashid, who was never on time for the shoot. We now hear that Deepika has approached CINTAA (Cine & TV Artistes Association) and will take legal action against the producers for non-payment of her dues.
We hope this matter gets resolved soon enough.
