Bombay HC orders stay on release of Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty's Motichoor Chaknachoor
The Bombay High Court today stayed the release of the film Motichoor Chaknachoor. The comedy film starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty was scheduled to release on October 10.
Debamitra Biswal, 40, had approached the court after she was not paid her promised dues by the makers of the film Woodpecker Movies Private Limited. Biswal, who is a writer and director, filed a commercial arbitration petition before the court.
According to Biswal, there was a contract drawn between the filmmakers and her which says that Biswal was to be paid Rs 11 lakh for her work as director of the film.
