T-Series boss Bhushan Kumar has gone public to blast Sunny Deol and blamed him for the delays over the release of their film ‘I Love NY’.
The film has constantly been in the news today after lead actress, Kangna Ranaut filed a lawsuit against the release of ‘I Love NY’ next week.
Kumar told Deccan Chronicle, ���I hadn�۪t spoken about this because of my respect for Sunny as a senior artiste, but you can�۪t go to the level of maligning my company. My film was held up for four years because Sunny refused to dub for it. This, after I had paid him his entire fees and not a single penny was delayed. There were some portions to be re-shot, but he said that he couldn�۪t do then, as he had grown a beard for Yamla Pagla Deewana. I sent him a legal notice and told him that I will have to get someone else to dub his voice, after which he agreed to dub for my film. By then Kangana Ranaut had lost interest in the film, but she still agreed to dub and re-shoot her parts. She has been professional and I have no complaints against her.�
Meanwhile, Kumar said that he was aware of Ranaut’s legal document but said there was no clause in her contract of her having a say on the release date. He was quoted in the publication saying, “Actors like Shah Rukh and Salman add a clause in their contract saying they will have a say on the release date of a film, but Kangana or Sunny cannot do so because they had no such clause in their contracts.”
