Jackky Bhagnani and Vashu Bhagnani's 'Pooja Entertainment', which recently produced Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff starrer Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, is making headlines for all the wrong reasons. One of the crew members has revealed on social media that she and her team have been waiting for their overdue wages for a year now. The member also expressed her frustration over the delay, which was promised to be resolved within 45-60 working days, and slammed the company for exploiting their dedication to filmmaking.

Pooja Entertainment accused of non-payment

Ruchita Kamble, a crew member, took to her social media account and shared a long post to express her anger by sharing the details of the incident. In her post, she revealed that she generally avoids making such posts but after looking at her team struggle daily to receive their hard-earned money, she has to take this step. 

She also highlighted the unprofessional and unethical behaviour of Pooja Entertainment for too long. "Read the sheer frustration of these young girls who have beautifully stated the absolute disregard @pooja_ent has and the sheer unprofessional, unethical behaviour that we all have been tolerating for way too long," a part of her post read. 

Ruchika also mentioned that the team was passed from one person to another to ask for their own money. She wrote: “Being dodged from person to another just to ask for our own money which was promised to be cleared within 45-60 working days post completion which in itself is also unprofessional but the crew graciously agreed as we r a bunch driven by passion for filmmaking. But to exploit this passion to such an extent should not be acceptable.”

She ended her note by warning and making others aware of the production house and she asked other filmmakers to avoid working with the company. She wrote, "There is no hope of getting paid but this post is to make the countless others aware of this fraudulent practices by @pooja_ent @jackkybhagnani @vashubhagnani and vouch to not work with them. PS – Urge my friends to kindly reshare this post and ask other filmmakers to do so too. And if u r associated with any media houses who can escalate it or cover this that will b great (sic).”

Meanwhile, Pooja Entertainment is run by Vashu Bhagnani and his children, Jackky Bhagnani and Deepshika Deshmukh. The production house recently produced Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, which is said to have been made on a budget of 350 crore but was a box office dud
