EXCLUSIVE: Abhishek Kapoor has another fallout - this time with KriArj Entertainment & T-Series

Sources reveal that Kedarnath was going grossly overbudget as director Abhishek Kapoor's planning was completely unprofessional and disorganized as the entire production was being handled by Kapoor's Guy In the Sky Pictures.

KriArj Entertainment who are fast gaining the reputation of backing some of the biggest blockbusters and music giants and production house T-Series announced their association with Kedarnath directed by Abhishek Kapoor.

While there has been ample speculation surrounding the severing of this partnership, official sources confirm that KriArj Entertainment and T-Series faced major financial and creative differences with the filmmaker.

The filmmaker has had differences earlier with actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar, Excel Productions, veteran superstar Rekha and filmmaker Apoorva Lakhia among others .

Sources reveal that owing to his history and lack of professionalism , the film had no takers until KriArj Entertainment came on board to produce the film.

The new age studio, who shares a great equation with T-Series later brought them on board as well to look after other aspects like the music, digital, satellite and cable rights. However, both the studios were wary with Abhishek's interference in their financial decisions and his constant delays in delivering the film .The film was going grossly overbudget as Kapoor's planning was completely unprofessional and disorganized as the entire production was being handled by Kapoor's Guy In the Sky Pictures.

Says an inside source , "KriArj Entertainment and T-Series decided to come onboard since they believed in the film and in Abhishek Kapoor's vision. However, as Kedarnath unfolded several issues pertaining the dates of the talent , prep time and delays in the film's delivery began cropping up. Abhishek replaced several of the crew members and technicians at the very last minute. Despite investing a huge some of funding into the project , Kedarnath was going way overbudget owing to Gattu's constant unreasonable demands . He not only delayed the shoot of the film by six months but also majorly interfered in the film's financial planning and overall business workings. Abhishek also demanded that a higher price be quoted for the music rights and this despite T-Series being music moguls and being the best in the music industry".

Adds the source, "Deciding a film's release date should be the producers call since they are the one's investing huge sums into the project. However, Abhishek interfered in that as well and went on to announce a release date on Twitter without consulting KriArj Entertainment who were against releasing the film on the same date as Zero.  There were also rumors of Abhishek Kapoor not allowing KriArj to sign Sara Ali Khan for another film they were in talks for and pressurized the studio to drop the film. It came to a point where the makers refused to put up with Kapoor's arm twisting. For now Kedarnath is on hold until everything is clear on papers".

Feel bad for Sushant ( the industry outsider and good actor. He might be arrogant but better than lot of nepo kids). Sara, the nepo kid will survive just fine #thanksNepotism

ekta and abhishek posted a bunch on insta. i think the film is back on w/o KriArj.

This is what happens when you choose to listen to your mother instead of the real professionals. We all know KJo is not a saint but he knows how the industry works currently. I see Sara's career going the way Soha's went

Sara needs to watch for herself. Her launch is more crucial than anything else! Hope she can find someone more reliable to launch her.

While I may feel bad for Sara but definitely NOT for Sushant for he is such an ARROGANT guy....serves him well

The fact that you can't even justify how he is arrogant with solid proof proves who is really arrogant. He was and always will be one of the most humblest, realest and intelligent actors out there.

I hope in your real life people laugh at your failure too.

Sara going the Kareena way

you mean making an offbeat film and becoming a star? then YEAH

So Sara left kjo for this film and on the other hand jhanvi kapoor bagged two films. Soty2 girls will be announced soon too. I believe Sara rejected 7 scripts too

jhanvi is just 20 & going to release 2 films this yr and sara is already 24, she has to do it quick.

Jhanvi has sridevi behind her, she knows how industry works and how to launch her daughter. Boney could easily launch her daughter, but they opted for dharma productions and surely sridevi will be selecting scripts for jhanvi.

Whoa! I can't believe Abhishek is so unprofessional . I feel so bad for Sushant and Sara especially Sara.
