ZEE TV show Hamari Bahu Silk’s cast is currently dealing with non-payment issues. The lead actor of the show, Zaan Khan recently highlighted the whole issue on social media. The actor shared videos wherein cast and crew members of the show were requesting producers to clear their dues. While the whole cast is struggling with the issue, the lead actress of the show, Chahat Pandey tried to commit suicide.
Hamari Bahu Silk ran on ZEE TV for only five months and went off air in August last year. But what’s saddening is that the payment of the cast has yet not been cleared by the makers of the show.
Actor Zaan Khan, who played the lead role in Hamari Bahu Silk made some shocking revelations in his recent conversation with Pinkvilla. The actor revealed that Chahat Pandey attempted suicide. “Chahat had actually attempted to commit suicide, but it was her mother who came to her rescue. Her mother stopped her from taking the drastic step. She has struggled a lot to be an actress, this money means a lot to her. It is the first time that she has earned such a big amount, but to her sheer bad luck, she is deprived of this also. She is the sole earning member in her family, her father is no more, and she has two small brothers and a mother to look after,” he shared.
It has now been reported that Indian Film and TV Producers’ Council (IFTPC) Chairman JD Majethia has stepped in to resolve the matter. He said usually in such cases CINTAA approaches and hence the issue goes through a dispute committee meeting. However, in this case, he is doubtful that the producers are going to help Hamari Bahu Silk cast. But, he is hopeful that IFTPC producers will help clear the dues of the actors and the whole team.
Zaan Khan also said that the cast has decided to take the legal route and everybody is waiting for the lockdown to end to file a criminal suit against the fraudsters.
