Action artistes have brought the shooting of Salman Khan’s film Mental to an unexpected halt.
ApunKaChoice has already informed you that Salman Khan has been shooting for brother Sohail Khan’s film Mental at Lavasa along with a strong crew that includes a lot of action artistes from down south. Well, incidentally, it’s these extras who have thrown a spanner in the works.
We hear that a dispute has broken out between the fighters from Hyderabad, Chennai and the film’s production team. The artistes allege discrimination and lower payments.
They have claimed that the team is paying them half the wages that are paid to Mumbai fighters, who easily outnumber them seven to three.
The artists have reportedly filed a complaint against the Mental production team with the FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees) officials in Mumbai. When their complaint was rejected, the artists reportedly stalled the shoot of action sequences on the sets of Mental.
Now, some senior members of Film Employee's Federation of South India are said to be mediating to resolve the dispute so that the shoot can progress unhindered.
