Recently, Zee TV's Aisi Deewangi...Dekhi Nahi Kahi came to an abrupt end and we told you all about the series of events that led to it. The lead pair, Pranav Misshra and Jyoti Sharma filed a complaint against the producers of the show to the Cine And TV Artistes Association as they were facing 'inhuman treatment and working conditions' on the sets of the TV show. Rumours were rife that they were going to quit the show. The past couple of months were not exactly merry for the show. And now, according to reports in a leading daily, the producers have taken legal actions against the lead pair.
The producer Aastha Naad said, "We were in a state of shock after reading Pranav and Jyoti's statement in the media. We weren't expecting it as they had wished us for the New Year. If they had an issue regarding anything, including fee hike, they could have informed us. They had read the contract before signing it. So, we couldn't understand how such grave issues cropped up overnight. We invest so much time and energy while grooming new actors. If this is what we get in return, God save us. None of the other actors had an issue. We had meetings with the CINTAA and were expecting a solution. However, they told us that the lead actors need to be pampered. Why should we discriminate within the cast members?" She further added, "It happens initially on every set because we have to make a bank of episodes, but that didn't happen on a regular basis here. We follow all the rules set by the trade union." They finally have approached the IMPPA. Aastha said, "We have also taken legal action against the lead pair for monetary loss, breach of trust, defamation, criminal conspiracy and blackmailing." Anil Nagrath, the secretary of IMPAA said, "We have received a complaint from the producers, citing harassment and deliberately causing losses as both artistes did not honour their agreement and left the show mid-way, leading to its premature end."
Now we have to wait and watch as to what happens next.
