It was recently reported how Ekta Kapoor filed a lawsuit claiming that actor Sanjay Dutt owed her Rs 1.5 crore for a film she had paid him for which fell through. The reports suggested that the film which was co-produced by Suniel Shetty, didn’t happen due to Kapoor and Dutt falling out.

Now Dutt’s wife Maanyata Dutt and Kapoor herself have both come out claiming that these reports are in fact untrue. Issuing an official statement, the two women expressed,”The contents of the article that appeared in Mumbai Mirror on November 7, 2014, have taken us by surprise, since the facts are malicious, completely incorrect and the sources are definitely questionable. Contrary to the article,there is no on going dispute of any kind between us. Shobha Ji/ Ekta and Sanjay share a very good personal and professional relationship. Sanjay has known Ekta and her family personally for a very long time, and the relationship between the two families goes back a long way. Ekta Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt are in fact planning to work together for an upcoming project of Ekta�۪s, after Sanjay�۪s release.”

With Dutt currently doing time for possessing illegal arms back in 2008, the statement went onto say, “We are greatly aggrieved by such statements made against Sanjay in public. Such maligning and defamation of Sanjay is completely uncalled for, especially at a time of crisis and in his absence. We will take appropriate legal action against the persons responsible for the same.”

Both Kapoor and Dutt (Maanyata) expressed their great disappointment with reporters for claiming such rumours. They both expressed their dear respect for each others families and both made it clear that there is a high respect for each other and still remain very close.
