Completes dubbing for estranged pal Sanjay Dutt's 'Rascals' after initially refusing to do so
Kangna Ranaut seems to have thrown in the towel, at least where Rascals is concerned.
The actress, currently embroiled in a cold war with Sanjay Dutt, had earlier refused to complete the dubbing for the David Dhawan comic caper co-produced by Dutt unless she was paid more.
The move backfired. A complaint was lodged with the Cine and TV Artistes Association (CINTAA), as a result of which she promptly changed her mind about the additional remuneration and finished the dubbing over the weekend.
Sanjay Ahluwalia, who is co-producing Rascal with Dutt and Vinay Choksey, confirms, "Yes, Kangna has completed the dubbing even though she had some reservations earlier," he says.
While he does not elaborate on what her "reservations" were about, sources had earlier informed that Kangs was just trying to get even with the Rascals team for deliberately excluding her from the film's title track due to her fallout with Dutt.
Registering a complaint
A source reiterates, "She had walked off mid-way through the dubbing and asked for an additional payment even though her full acting fee had been paid.
On Friday night, however, she completed the dubbing at Yash Raj Studios. No additional remuneration was given.
A complaint was lodged with (CINTAA) after she walked out. I guess after that better sense prevailed and she decided it was better to complete her portion of the dubbing. That complaint has now been withdrawn."
However, if Kangs thought this move would help her make peace with Sanjubaba or even the crew, she is wrong. Our source reveals, "The actress will not be included in the film's promotions.
Even though she stays in the movie, Lisa Haydon will be promoted as Dutt and Ajay Devgn's co-star in Rascals."
