Replacement drama in Police Factory; CINTAA intervenes to sort issues
SAB TV’s bi weekly series Police Factory (DJ’s A Creative Unit) has been constantly in the news since the time the makers launched the show.
Even before airing its first episode, Police Factory, made it to the news for some big replacements in the venture.
And continuing with the trend, here we come up with another piece of news of replacement in the bi-weekly action, comedy drama. Earlier we reported about Sonal Vengurlekar (Shastri Sisters) replacing Sharmin Kazi (Million Dollar Girl), followed by Sonal’s unhappy exit from the project. And now we hear that Maharana Pratap famedDeeksha Sonalkar has stepped into Sonal’s shoes after the latter called it quits.
When contacted, confirming the development, Deeksha, said, “I have already started shooting for the show from yesterday and I am really looking forward to the series. This one is my first show in comedy genre; hopefully I will be able to live up to the expectation”.
But, what we hear from a source is that the entire replacement was not a simple one as CINTAA (Cine & TV Artistes Association) had to intervene to solve the issues between the actor and the maker.
A source associated with the show shared, “Sonal was not much happy with the development of her character; hence she put down her papers, but was supposed to serve a notice period of three months. After the entire incident, she did not receive any calls from the makers. Unable to get the clearer picture of the matter, Sonal filed a complaint to CINTAA, who then informed her about the replacement”.
Speaking about the issues, Sonal commented, “Yes, I complained to CINTAA, as I was not getting a clear picture of the entire matter. Initially I was asked to serve a notice period of three months and then there was no communication from the side of the makers and the creative team. Hence, I spoke to CINTAA authorities, who then informed me about my replacement”.
On the other hand, another source stated that after Sonal put down her papers, the producers also tried to have a talk with her as she was the apt choice for the character of Priya. But, it seems that Sonal and the makers were not on the same line related to her character development. Later on, we got to know that she filed a complaint to CINTAA and post her complain, the makers roped in Deeksha for the role.
When we contacted producer, Deeya Singh, she commented, “Sorry, I have no clue about the entire issues, hence, cannot comment”.
We also reached actor Sushant Singh, who is also a committee member of CINTAA, who stated, “CINTAA was informed about the dispute between the actor and the producer and we tried our level best to sort the issues. But, things have not yet completely resolved so may be through a joint dispute settlement along with producers committee and CINTAA, we will try to clear the differences”.
Hope all the issues between both the parties’ sorts out soon.
