Things took an unexpected turn for the team of Ayushmann Khurrana’s forthcoming project ‘Hawaizaada’. The film, which was being directed by Vibhu Puri, is currently facing trouble and it is doubtful whether the remaining shooting will happen or the project will be shelved altogether.
According to sources, problem started over non-payment dues of an assistant director. Apparently he took the matter to the Union, after repeated requests about his payment went unnoticed. Following his complaint some union members turned up at the filmmaker’s office and ransacked it. While the problem was sorted out later, with the AD getting his dues, fresh problems arose when other technicians demanded their pending payments as well. Even their payment issues were solved; however these things delayed the shooting of ‘Hawaizaada’ further and it is alleged that nearly ten to fifteen days of shooting is remaining. And this has been going on for three months.
On the other hand, production house Reliance is also not willing to cough up more amounts citing that the project has already crossed the budget.
Well, as of now, ‘Hawaizaada’ is hanging on the thread of hope... Whether the project will survive this monetary issue or will it sadly disappear... Only time will tell now...
