Further, Dinesh Vijan’s Maddock films made it clear that they have submitted all the required documents as proof of their innocence. “We have submitted relevant documents for the proof of such payment to the department. It should be noted that in fact all funding and financial transactions for the shooting in Hungary were handled by T-Series. You may confirm from T-Series. Maddock Films is a responsible filmmaker and we dutifully follow the rules and law of our country,” the statement read.
Raabta that also starrer Jim Sarbh, Varun Sharma and Rajkummar Rao alongside Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon did not turn out to be a success as expected. The film was Dinesh Vijan’s directorial debut in Bollywood.
