Sara Ali Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Kedarnath has been in making for a while now. The shooting which was kick-started last year is yet to wrap up its final schedule. The Abhishek Kapoor directorial which was marred with controversy recently was just going to begin its third schedule, but it seems like another roadblock has come its way. Reportedly, Abhishek has now sued the film’s leading lady, Sara, who will be making her Bollywood debut with this film.
Apart from Kedarnath, Sara had even signed Rohit Shetty‘s Simmba, which was going to go on floors in June and Sara had given bulk dates for the film. Kapoor’s Kedarnath, on the other hand, was going to begin its third schedule in 15 days and thus the filmmaker has dragged the actress to the court.
A source close to the project revealed,
Though Sara had allotted her June and July dates to Kedarnath, she reassigned them to Simmba, as Kedarnath was in limbo then, owing to Abhishek’s fiasco with producer Prernaa Arora.
The tabloid also reported that Abhishek has demanded a sum of 5 crores for damages and the matter was heard in the Bombay High Court Yesterday.
Talking about the case, Abhishek’s legal council Sharan Jagtiani said,
The court ordered that both parties settle the matter between themselves and arrive at dates which suit both. However, the attempt to resolve the matter has fallen through. The case will be argued on Tuesday.
We hope that the Abhishek and Sara resolve their dispute soon.
