The producer of ‘Bardaan’, Kabita Shrestha lodged a complaint against actress and producer Rejina Upreti when she refused to share the loss caused by the failure of the movie.
When the attempt to settle the case by the film producer association was unsuccessful, Kabita has lodged the complaint to Home Ministry, District Administrative Office of Lalitpur and District Police Office Jawalakhel. The president of film producer association, Raj Kumar Rai, has also asked the police to settle the case.
Kabita Shrestha claims that Rejina Upreti has to pay at least Rs. 2 million according to the agreement between them.
In response to the complaint by Kabita, Rejina has also threatened to lodge a counter-claim of defaming her. She says, the movie is yet to release in more than 40 theaters in Nepal and screening in Bangkok and London is still not done. So, she claims that the loss is overblown and there is high chance that the movie will make more money.
