A film producer has dragged to court Sara Sultan, daughter of Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, who is also known as Sara Ali Khan, over a dispute in dates for her debut film. A vacation bench of Justice S J Kathawalla heard the producer’s counsel Hitesh Jain who pleaded urgency.
The court posted the matter for a hearing on Friday.
The producer has also made Sultan’s agent and a talent management company parties in the suit to restrain her from working for another film 'Simmba' as it claimed that she had already committed dates to her debut film 'Kedarnath'. Guy In The Sky Productions Pvt Ltd which moved the High Court also wants the HC to direct her to complete her first commitment first and demanded ₹ 5 crore as damages. The question being raised in court is whether an actor can change dates already given and give them for another movie.
The producer, said in its complaint that in 2017 it had undertaken production of a film tentatively named 'Kedarnath’ which is directed by Abhishek Kapoor with Sushant Singh as the male lead.
It said that Sara agreed to be the female lead an agreement made last September. The plea in court is that though she had agreed to be available for the shoot but when informed last month that the shoot would continue through May till July 5, her agent said she would not be available in June since she has to go for another film, which according to the suit is a “breach” of the agreement.
