Being an actor is tough, sometimes because of the work schedules and sometimes because of their struggle for the money. It’s been around two years since his track in the show, ‘Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka’, ended and actor Abhinav Shukla is still fighting to get his dues cleared.
The actor has now turned towards the law to get his payment. The actor’s contract with the production house had a clause stating that he would be given a month’s notice if and when the channel decided to axe his character. He joined the show in mid-May 2018, and he was working fine with them for a few months.
However, on October 27, 2018, he received a mail from the production house, stating that his contract had been terminated with immediate effect and that his character has been axed. Apart from the fact that this was a breach, he was allegedly not paid his dues for the month of October and November (which would have been his notice period).
He tried his best to get the dues cleared but all in vain. Now he has decided to opt fr the legal route. His lawyer in a statement to Bombay Times, “Besides many other issues, including misinforming and misleading the channel that Abhinav wasn’t available for the shoot, thereby compelling them to cast another actor as his replacement, the production house has even breached the contract by going against the clause under which Abhinav had to be compulsorily given a termination notice of a month in advance about his exit. He worked during the month of October, 2019, for which he hasn’t been paid. He hasn’t got his dues for the month of November as well, as stipulated in the contract. He even approached the channel and the Cine and TV Artists Association (CINTAA) and a meeting was held between CINTAA and Indian Film and TV Producers Council (IFTPC) representing the two parties. However, the solution provided in the meeting wasn’t respected by the production house. Left with no other option, he moved criminal court for registration of an FIR for the offences of cheating, fraud and extortion. The next hearing is in February.”
When contacted, producer Comall Wadhwa said, “We have not received any communication till date on any complaint being filed by anyone against us or our company.”
