Cast and crew of a horror film allege that their dues have not been cleared after the project gets shelved
A romantic-horror flick woven around the ‘haunted’ Mukesh Mills has been abandoned a year after it went on floors. Sources say the cast and crew of Haunting of Bombay Mills are upset not only since they were kept in the dark about the decision to shelve the project, but also because their dues have not been cleared.

Says a source, “Uncertainty loomed over the project after director Ayush Raina was shown the door following creative differences with writer Prawaal Raman (director of Main Aur Charles). The latter was willing to wield the directorial baton, but we hear the film isn’t working out anymore.”
The film’s producer, Vikram Kakkar and Raman remained unavailable for comment. A unit member says, “It came as a shock to us since the project was nearing completion. We have repeatedly requested the makers to clear our payment, but they are not listening to us.”
Kainaat Arora, who was part of the star cast, also blames the makers for failing to clear their dues. In a text message to hitlist, she says: “All I can say is was at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people.”
