‘Welcome Back’ (2014) was a film which saw a few drawbacks before release and now it’s emerged that the film’s director Anees Bazmee is yet to receive a fee for the film.

Bazmee told PTI, “I am waiting for the producer (Firoz Nadiadwala) to pay my dues. I gave three years of my life for this film… I worked hard for this project, but I still haven’t got my remaining payment”.

He added, “I was to get over Rs 4.5 crore but he asked me to do some settlement, so I asked him to pay me Rs 2 crore, I let go the remaining amount.��I was supposed to get the money before the release of the film. But I still went and made the film for the relationship we share (Firoz Nadiadwala and I). I kept patience”.

He continued, “Even though the film has released and is doing well, I am yet to get my money. I am not greedy. I am not angry, I am hurt.��I will not take any harsh step. I am not that kind of a person. I called up (producer Firoz Nadiadwala), but no response from him”.

Bazmee also spoke about the the forthcoming instalment of the ‘Welcome’ franchise, “”I am not sure if I would make the third part of Welcome. I don’t want to make a film just for the heck of it and cheat people. I don’t want to cash on the goodwill of Welcome. If I get a good story then I might make it”.

The film starred John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Nana Patekar and Shruti Haasan and released on 4th September.
