The special Joint Dispute Settlement Commitee meeting held at the CINTAA (Cine & TV Artistes Association) office on Thursday evening in the presence of the Producers’ body and CINTAA officials to get to a solution regarding the Shilpa Shinde issue has apparently turned fruitless.
A source tells us, “Everyone present at the JDSC meeting wanted Shilpa to resume her shoot immediately for the & TV show, Bhahiji Ghar Pe Hai. However, even after convincing her for two and half hours, the actress did not budge and refused to get back as Angoori.”
The meeting was helmed by Sushant Singh, Honorary General Secretary, CINTAA and member of JDSC. Giving him company from the CINTAA side were eminent actors Deepak Qazir and Sunil Sinha.
Representing the Producers’ body were Producers Gul Khan, Raakesh Paswan, Rahul Tewary and Shyamashis Bhattacharya. The Producers of Bhabhiji, Mr. And Mrs. Kohli were also present.
Our source further states, “Shilpa just did not adhere to the requests made by the committee members. She only said that she will deal with this issue in the legal way.”
When contacted, Producer Gul Khan told us, “Yes, the Joint Dispute Settlement Commitee was put in place only for Shilpa. Everyone tried convincing her to stay on the show. However, she just does not want to do the show. She does not want to honour her contract even when everybody wants her to get back.”
Producer Raakesh Paswan told us, “It is very unfortunate that even after signing the tri-party (Channel, Producer, Actor) exclusive contract, she is not willing to continue with the show. We addressed all her problems, and the question of not giving a hike does not enter as she has already taken two hikes in a year. Benaifer proved it by showing us the pertaining documents. We were actually feeling helpless on seeing Shilpa’s behaviour.”
We hear that the Committee will again get together today to derive a solution to the problem.
We will keep you updated on the same.
