They say that old incidents always comes back one way or the other, either to make you feel nostalgic or to haunt you. In case of Sanjay Dutt, it’s the latter that holds true.
The Bombay High Court has passed an order to seal Sanjay Dutt’s Mumbai property after producer Shakeel Noorani dragged the actor to court over losses incurred due to him abandoning a film. The case so far: In the year 2002, Shakeel Noorani launched the film Jaan Ki Baazi that had Sanjay Dutt in the lead along with Priyanka Chopra. Noorani claims that halfway through the shooting of the film, Dutt cancelled the shooting and that despite repeated attempts to contact him, he didn’t respond. That’s the reason why Noorani took a step to move to Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) seeking help, who in turn, had called Sanjay for hearing him but the arbitration committee adjourned the case twice on his request. The IMPPA, then, told Noorani to move to court, which had the High Court executing decree attaching the assets of Sanjay Dutt, which includes his residence in, Imperial Heights building at Pali Hill, Nargis Dutt Road, Bandra and his office, Sanjay Dutt Productions, Mayfair Melody at Tagore Road in Santacruz.
Noorani, on his part, claimed Rs 2.03 crore from Sanjay Dutt, which also includes Rs 50 lakh paid to him as signing amount. Noorani’s lawyer Ashok Sarogi told the media that Sanjay has an option of More >

Filmmaker Mehul Kumar (Krantiveer, Tiranga, Mrityudata), whose new film Krantiveer-The Revolution which takes off where the earlier film of the same title ended, released last Friday is in serious trouble. Over time, a number of debt-related legal cases were filed against him in various parts of India. Recently, Samata Bank, from where he supposedly borrowed approximately Rs 50 lakhs and failed to return it, has sealed his Juhu office.
Apparently, Kumar has been in debt for a very long time . Six months ago, a leading financer in Bihar, Shyam Bahadur, filed a case against Kumar in Munger Court. “He (Kumar) took Rs 15 lakhs from me. When he did not pay up, I went and met him. I didn’t like his behaviour. With all the ghapla he did, he made a multiplex in Jamnagar. This is just not done,” said a furious Shyam Bahadur. “I was helpless. That’s why I took the help of the law. I pray that justice is done.”
The worst affected is PEN (Popular Entertainment Network), from whom Mehul Kumar borrowed Rs 8 crores. Jayantilal Gada, of PEN said, “Mehul Kumar’s films say that government chor hai, police chor hai, lekin yeh aadmi khud kya hai? I have been fighting cases in court against him for a very long time but I still haven’t got justice. He started paying a little money in the form of interest to me More >

Mumbai: Sporting ties between India and Pakistan may have been weakened because of the IPL auction, in which each Pakistan player up for bids was rejected, but our neighbours continue to import Indian cinema to run the film business in Pakistan. There were apprehensions that Salman Khan-starrer Veer would not find takers after the Pakistan government threatened to break bilateral ties with India . However, the film has got a good initial at the box office and Aamir Khan’s 3 Idiots, even after two months, is being shown in three screens of one cineplex. The average earning from Indian movies is about Rs 2 crore a film.
Satish Anand, a distributor from Pakistan, said, Veer had an outstanding initial. The deal for My Name is Khan is already sealed. There is no interference from the government on the release of imported films. But the cricket controversy has hurt sentiments and affected goodwill in Pakistan. According to him, Bollywood films continue to have uninterrupted screenings. One reason for the demand for Indian films in Pakistan is the lack of good local cinema . Most distributors and exhibitors are happy because Indian films are keeping them in business. I dont see the situation changing soon; that too in the absence of good local films. Indian films have been playing in Pakistan households for the past two decades. The only change has been their recent introduction on the national cinema circuit, said MD of More >
