Choti Sarrdaarni' shoot was apparently stalled for 3 hours by Allied Mazdoor Union. They have been at loggerheads with the producers of the show over non-payment of dues. As per Times of India's latest reports, the union members paid a visit on the sets and brought the shooting of the show to a halt.

Pradeep of the producer duo of Pradeep Kumar and Rajesh Ram Singh said that members of the union, which represents workers in the art department, have been visiting the sets now and then and the have been demanding payment of dues. However, Pradeep said that they have already made some payments.

He said, “The show’s art director, Parul Bose, exceeded the budget allocated for set design, which was also cleared by us. In the first week of July, I held a meeting with labour union representatives and Parul, when she mentioned that a balance payment of two sets — 35 lakh (Filmcity) and 3.5 lakh (Mira Road) — was pending. We cleared it in three installments, but the labour union is now saying that 20 lakh is still pending. We just want them to share the relevant documents with us, but we haven’t received it yet."

He also said how he had to call the cops as it is illegal to halt a shoot. After the police's intervention, the shoot was resumed. As per the same report, Parul said that indeed producers have not cleared her dues and they owe her 45 lakhs. 

Gangeshwar Shrivatsav, general secretary, Film Studio and Allied Mazdoor Union, and FWICE treasurer revealed that the labourers have not yet paid their sum since past few months. He also said that if the dues are not cleared they will approach to the federation. What are your views on the same? Let us know in the comment section below.
