Dhanwani stated that the cheque was issued under coercion. Apparently, Nana had signed ‘Vadh’ for Rs. 75 lakh and was issued cheques for Rs. 50 lakh dated March 27, 2002 and for Rs. 25 lakh dated June 30, 2002. Patekar said that when he deposited the Rs. 25 lakh cheque, it was not honoured by the bank. The actor claimed that his remuneration was fixed at Rs. 1 crore. Dhanwani argued that Patekar’s remuneration was fixed at Rs. 25 lakh, and that the actor was to be paid further remuneration depending on the film’s success. Vadh bombed at the box-office.
