Since the past few weeks, we have not got our money. We got our cheques only to realise that they have bounced. We are thinking of having a word with the senior members of the production team and it would be great if we could sort things out at the earliest."
The crewmember says that currently, the team is keen to complete shooting for the show and move on to the next assignment.
"But of course, we are quite disappointed with the state of affairs. We having been working on the show from the beginning and we were expecting to end it on a happy note. We are hoping that the production house will soon pay our dues."
Abhinav Shukla, the producer of the show, denied the buzz. He said, "If they haven't really been paid, then they should come to me or report the matter to the workers' union, why are saying this to the media. This is all hogwash."
