Tina Dutta, who plays Iccha in the show, threatened to leave it unless her daily fee was doubled; the producer is aghast

When the child actor of Uttran grew up in the show, it was criticised by its loyal viewers. Turns out, it happened for good reason. Apparently the entire crew of the show is very unhappy with Tina (who plays Iccha as a grown-up).
While on this show, Tina has indeed grown too big for her boots. She has asked the producer of Uttran, Pintu Guha to double her existing fee from Rs 15,000 per day to Rs 30,000 per day. A source from the TV industry says, “If this does not happen, Tina has threatened to quit the show.”
We hear, Guha has now asked the AMTPP (Association Of Motion Picture and TV Programme Producers) to look into the matter. He is flabbergasted at her demand because he recently hiked her fee from Rs12,000 per day to Rs15,000. “Tina is demanding an exorbitant amount and her blackmail tactics are unfair,” adds the source.
It was reported recently that Tina accused a hairdresser of stealing her wig. Members of the Hairdressers’ Association intervened and stalled the shoot but the crew of Uttran somehow pacified them and sent them back. Later, it was reported that the wig was found with Tina.
However, Tina says, “Things have been blown out of proportion. The same thing happened when I lost my wig. Later, I found that it was with one of the production guys.” When More >
