Fox Star Studios has released an official statement on its ongoing disagreement between Blingg Unplugged and the Bhanot Family over the film ‘Neerja’ (2016).
It said, “Fox Star Studios is extremely proud of its film ‘Neerja’ and holds the Bhanot family in great esteem. However, the facts are that the Studios does not have any contractual obligations towards the Bhanot family as the life rights and permissions were obtained by Blingg Unplugged from the Late Neerja Bhanot’s family long before Fox Star Studios came onboard to produce the film. Fox Star Studios has been duly honouring its contractual obligations towards Blingg Unplugged. It’s unfortunate that Blingg and Bhanot family have not been able to resolve their disagreements. The life story of Neerja Bhanot inspired the nation and the movie created history, created memories that we deeply cherish, memories that will last forever. We hope for quick resolution to the ongoing issue.”
Just to recall the Bhanot family is reportedly unhappy with the makers of the film for not abiding by the 10% share of its box office collections.
