Has Ekta Kapoor sued Sunjay Dutt for Rs 1.5 crore?
Problems for Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt don’t seem to settle down any soon. According to the latest buzz in B-town, television and film producer Ekta Kapoor has filed a suit against Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt for Rs 1.5 crore, which was given as a signing amount to the actor, for a film which was supposed to be her joint venture with Sunil Shetty.
Media reports suggest that Ekta took it to the courts after Shetty asked Dutt’s wife’s Manyata for the amount, and she showed no concern over it.
The leading daily also quotes a source as saying, “Money is money. And Ekta wants her money back. What’s wrong in that? It is a justified demand and the Dutts should pay up.”
Locked behind the bars in Yerawada Jail in Pune, Sanjay Dutt is currently serving his remaining 42-month-jail-term by the Supreme Court for illegal possession of weapons in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case.
