It seems Karan Singh Grover’s lady luck is not really shinning. Reason? The good looking dude’s back to back flick seems to have got stuck due to one reason or the other. Teen Dev, which also starred fellow TV actor Ravi Dubey, has been in the works for a long time.
Now, comes big another piece of bad news for KSG that his next flick titled Firrkie co starring Sandeepa Dhar, Niel Nitin Mukesh and Kay Kay Menon is also held up.
According to sources, “Major financial issues cropped up during the film’s London shoot in Aug September last year. As a result the film has not yet been completed. Payments to vendors for shooting are not forthcoming. Apparently some crew members have also not been paid and have even complained to their respective associations.”
However, when we spoke to producer Vipul Tiwari, he said, “All India based vendors have been paid. I am not sure whether the UK Line producer has made all the payments on his end. We had an airport to airport deal with him and have cleared his dues. I will look into the issue and try to find out who is not paid. We have paid who we all need to.”
He also denied that the film has been delayed. “We are waiting for the edited part and once that comes, we plan our next schedule which also will be international. These things take time and we need to get dates of all concerned actors. We hope to release the film around May.”
However, sources maintain that the issues have not been resolved.
Coming to KSG, there have been no film announcements for a while. Even his upcoming Alt Balaji web series in a kind of spot of bother with media reports suggesting that lead girl has Palak Jain opted out.
However, all is not lost for KSG for according to sources Teen Dev might soon see the light of the day. But not final call has yet not been taken.
Karan, a major TV star (Dill Mill Gayye and Qubool Hai) moved to films with Alone and Hate Story 3 which was a big hit.
We wish him all the luck and success.
