Actor Ajay Devgn has denied the cheat case filed by Nagpur-based distributor Appu Wadhwani, who had filed a complaint in a local court saying that the makers of the movie Bol Bachchan have dishonoured the deal struck with him for the film's all-India theatre rights last year. The Bollywood star has said that they have not cheated anybody over the theatre rights of his upcoming film.
Talking to PTI, Ajay Devgn said, "It is ridiculous. The matter is in court and with the association...he is saying something, we are saying something. So whoever is right...the right thing will be done." The actor-turned-producer added, "If he has one point then we also have one point. I don't want to talk about it as the matter is in court. We have not cheated anybody."
In his complaint, Appu Wadhwani, the distributor running a company Hira Laxmi Amusement Private Ltd, had claimed that he had entered into an agreement with the producers for all-India theatre rights last year for Rs 53.20 crore and had paid a token money of Rs 1.01 crore. But the deal fell through. The producers later entered into a fresh deal with Fox Star Studios.
The distributor alleged that the Bol Bachchan producers have dishonoured the deal struck with him. He appealed the local court seeking stoppage of film release and refund of the token money. Talking about it, Ajay Devgn says, "We have been requesting him to come to the association and solve the matter but he is not coming. He can claim whatever he wants. The matter is in court. There are two issues in it. I am not involved in this."
Ajay Devgn says that he has not cheated the distributor and he will accept the decision of the court. The actor added, "It is there between him and Ashtavinayak, there are different issues...both have filed case in the court. Nobody is cheating anybody. The court will decide and whatever they decide will be done."
However, Bol Bachchan, which has been directed by Rohit Shetty, is an amazing romantic-comedy film. Dynamic stars like Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Asin Thottumkal and Prachi Desai are playing the lead roles in it. The film, which is inspired by the 1979 comic flick Gol Maal, is slated for release on July 6.
