Luv Ranjan’s upcoming film starring Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor has landed in legal mess due to unrest amongst workers.
Box Office Worldwide reports that the incident turned sour on the film’s set at Mumbai’s Royal Palms in Goregaon in March. The report adds that around 350 members decided to halt the production claiming that they had not been paid.
FWICE General Secretary Ashok Dubey said, 2Yes, this happened today on the set of Luv Ranjan’s upcoming film. This is a move of unity with the workers, who have still not been paid. First, the batch of workers who toiled at Kandivli was not paid. Later, they shot at The Royal Palms where they called the second batch of workers, who also have not been fully paid – an amount to the tune of Rs 12.5 lakh is outstanding. Post that, they have been shooting at a set in Chitrakoot, Andheri. There, the shooting is going on in one set. They were making another set in the adjoining space, wherein the workers stopped working today. Here also, a new set of workers has been used.”
