Producer Ramesh Taurani files a case against Deepika Padukone

Not taking it lying down, producer Ramesh Taurani of Tips was prompt to take action against actress Deepika Padukone post her last minute exit from Tips’ ambitious thriller Race 2.

Deepika ‘s impromptu exit from the film after having shot for a week upon being offered a Hollywood project, hasn’t gone down well with the producer who on Thursday filed a complaint with the CINTAA (Cine & TV
Artistes Association) and the Association of Motion Pictures & TV Programme Producer of India (AMPTPP).

The CINTAA was quick to inform the actress about the complaint filed in her name by the filmmaker.

Citing her unavailability to not having dates and being over-committed to other projects, the actress also seemed indifferent to the developments after having left the film in the lurch.

As per procedural norms if an artist fails to respond to a complaint or grievance, the case then passes onto the FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees).If still not addressed, the artist is then liable to face a NCD (Non-Cooperation Directive).

Explains senior producer Pahlaj Nihalani said, "If Taurani has filed a complaint against Deepika, she will have to honour the dates which she had allotted to him. If she has given the same dates to any other producer, she cannot shoot for the other project”

Says an upset Ramesh Taurani “I have been a part of the Hindi cinema industry for 25 years. I have made several blockbusters. But I have never faced a situation like this before. Our directors and the other actors are extremely annoyed with her. Tips as a company in its last 25 years has never had a dispute with anyone in this industry, ther
is no single case in the association which involves us

Produced by Tips ,the action thriller Race 2 was scheduled for a November release.

DP has not made any comment, so we dont know the other side of the story...I aint buying it till then..

a story is always two sided.. no comments.. but deepika has a promising future and I hope she will sort dis the besy way..

If this is true, then yes it was really unprofessional of Deepika!

Hope this is not a rumor and is actually true....that b.tch needs a lesson...


it is not your fault that the director kept changing the dates. KEEEEEEEEEEP ROCKING!!

disappointed because this is truly unprofessional of Deepika. It would be odd for her to return to the project cause he won't give it her 100% no matter. But she should address this pending issue and sort it out. Really sad to see such irresponsible behavior, i didn't expect this from her.

Hope she gets out of it easily

is she wearing pads in this pic ?

Wow, she's just at the start of her career , nd unprofessionalism allegations!though cant believe everything u read...let's see what her ppl have to put forward...

good one mr.taurani! such actors need to be taught a lesson..!


i really hope this is untrue. I wouldn't strike her as this sort. i just hope all this is false

imagine how awkward it will be for her to return to the film - don't think it will help her performance. Maybe another actress will do justice ..

Haters leave her alone she has a right to decide. Aishwariya was deceitful but you all came out to support deepika only changed her mind on a film she does not want anymore all are out to finish her. Why do you hate her so much just because Ranbir loves her and had flings with Kat and the rest? Sorry Deepika will forever be awesome.

good for her. she is a gold digger anyway. she started sleeping around in the industry at the age of 19 and now she is extremely good at it after doing with the mallya boy, wants ranbir back

she must be wishing that she didn't lie about Hollywood project...

What a jackass Deepika behaved this time!

very good! well deserved! Such actors need to be taught a lesson!

What That Hell This Ramesh ... First Toh He Was Totally Confused That Whom To Take In This Movie He Signup Up Deepika In This Moive Already But Again He Replace To Other Actress Even Deepika Didn't Tell Any Thing ... Deepika Was Happy To This Movie But Now Just Nonsense Rumor About Deepika !!

this is girl is desperate...God save her......or maybe NOT, haha she deserves this

finally her true colors are relived .

good job!!!!

She should punished and hope this desperate bimbo also out of Ranbir's YJHD movie.

Good, these actresses should be taught about professionalism.
