‘Kaabil’ director Sanjay Gupta fails to clear dues of ‘Jazbaa’

Sanjay Gupta, who will be directing Hrithik Roshan in his upcoming film ‘Kaabil’, has been accused of not paying the dues of his last film ‘Jazbaa’ which marked the return of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

According to a report on a daily newspaper, a few crew members who worked on the film are yet to receive their payment. These include story writer Kamlesh Pandey, screenplay writer Robin Bhatt, choreographer Ahmad Khan, cinematographer Sameer Arya and a few others.

The report states, the due amount was in excess of Rs 20 lakh. Sanjay had assured his crew members that the dues will be cleared once he receives payment from Essel Vision – who were the producers of ‘Jazbaa’.

However, Essel has said the amount has already been transferred to White Feather Films – which is Gupta’s production company. The agreement between Essel and White Feather Films was such that Sanjay was supposed to enter into an agreement with all actors, writers and other technicians and make the payments from the lump sum production cost provided.

Released in theatres on October 9 last year, ‘Jazbaa’ was an average grosser at the domestic box office.



  • Its a bad remark…
    Why does this happned in bollywood.
    He is going to make his biggest movie till date..
    He should be well prepard..

  • Let’s hope raees will run away from Kaabil and Kaabil will make Sanjay gupta Kaabil to pay all dues.

  • 20lakhs…? that’s just 5% of Hrithik signing fees…!!

    Saving grace of Sanjay is that it’s a Roshan home production.

  • It shows how much poor director he is.raees makers shouldn’t worry from this “xtra kaabil”

  • I really don’t like such behaviour, is very bad honestly. Speaking. Five month after the release of the film and uptil now their fee hasn’t been completed. Shame on you sanjay gupta and who ever is behind that

  • clean hits of Salman khan in the 90s are sanambewafa ,saajan,hahk,karan arjun,jeet,judwaa,pktdk ,bandhan , kkhh , biwi no .1 , hddcs ,hssh according to boi old and updated data( till 1994) and baaghi and kurbaan were semihits and verdict pending .jpkhh is semihit now…..as for srk ddlj,kkhh ,ka ,dtph ,pardes ,darr , baazigar ,deewana ,ramjane and yess boss

  • @Indicine Article kyun dimag karab karte ho
    Waise Kaabil is not Gupta’s Production Company
    lol !!!

  • if raess and kaabil clash happen than raees will win but the problem with raees are posted far away and the makers are not stake in date watch make you feel if the film not that good as expectations

  • Hrithik had affair with Kangana and then humiliated her. Shame on him. He should be rejected from bollywood.

  • If the guys owes then it’s a big shame. Hrithik does not deserve someone like him…but since Rakesh is the producer Kaabil will rock and no one will be owed.

  • Srk is specialist in making hit producers bankurrpt. example Koyla, but hrithik has ability to make them wealthy. example- Kaho naa pyar hai.

  • Sajan Gupta name is enough to destroy a film kabil will be a Disaster even solo release

  • @indicine is it true plz answer ‘Kabali’, the Rajnikanth movie
    clash with ‘Sultan’ at the box office.??is it true

  • In 90s jeet, Sunny hero, karisma and salman heroine. Superhit due to Sunny. Kaabil will flop, do not clash with king.

  • Flop director, Kaabil will be a flop too !
    And for those saying that Rakesh Roshan is a good producer, don’t forget Krazy 4 and Kites, cause if he’s a successful director, he’s a bad producer. Another flop for Hrithik after Bang Bang, Guzaarish, Kites and almost his whole career !

  • I am damn sure Raees will win over kaabil.coz of sanjay gupta is very poor.he cant afford to make big films.

  • @ms

    I told you I was quite sure..Hardly make mistakes with figures especially stats of senior actors am normally very careful wen posting their stats…

    I got 12 for Salman.. U2
    10 for Srk… U too.

    But there’s an update… Sanam bewafa was actually a hit in most sites.. Guess skipped cz was having an operation too Carry out. I will include it next time. As @ Tiger said… He was right.. It’s 13 hits. Ajay /Srk 10 hits..Aamir 6 Hits…

  • Kaabil its copy & paste of CHEEYAN’s Vikram tamil movie “THANDAVAM”. Nothing to worry RAEES will destroy this. King Khan’s new movie always top trend not bothered whether its delay.

  • @Abdulrahman If it was as per what you are saying…it would have been in the news by now and for your information…no one can just remake a south movie or whatever movie without official consent from the makers of original and that would be a news in the media if it happens…so just keep calm mate…

  • He’s a copy cat… Don’t know why Roshans got him !.. Sanjay Gupta and Apoorva Lakhia are two non-directors who copy entire screenplay from Korean and Hollywood movies and try to fuse it into Hindi stories…

    The only movie made by Sanjay Gupta which stands out is ‘Kaante’ because of Sanju Baba’s charismatic ‘Ajju’ and the entire story was taken from two Hollywood movies – ‘Reservoir Dogs’ & ‘Usual Suspects’…

    Sanjay Gadhvi or Nishikant Kamat or Neeraj Pandey would have been a better choice for an intense thriller as ‘Kaabil’ seems to be one…
