Vijay Galani ready to fight with Salman Khan
We had reported a few days that Vijay Galani, the producer of the 2010 Salman Khan-starrer ‘Veer’ has been banned from filmmaking by FWICE until he settles his dispute with Salman over remuneration. The producer had incurred the superstar’s wrath for allegedly not paying his dues amounting to nearly Rs 12 crore.
After weeks of keeping silent on the issue, now Vijay Galani, a member of the Association Of Motion Pictures and TV Programme Producers (AMPTPP) has hit back strongly at the allegations of wrongdoing. He stated in a press release that he denied Salman’s claim and said there was no such evidence or document brought on records of the Association to substantiate it. He added that inadvertently the FWICE had illegally issued a ‘non-cooperation’ statement against him which is against the MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) between the producers’ body and the FWICE. “AMPTPP has already intimated FWICE for withdrawal of the directive illegally issued by FWICE,” the release stated.
Galani further said that even Ratan Jain, president of AMPTPP has said the FWICE cannot issue non-cooperation directives unilaterally. AMPTPP has come up in support for the producer and even directed FWICE to lift the ban on Galani as the ban is against the MOU between FWICE and Producers' Bodies.
Mukesh Bhatt, the chairman of the joint core committee of producers stated that both parties have been asked to arrange a meeting until the non-cooperation is withdrawn.
Well.... Not many know the fact that Salman and Vijay Gaglani came into contact way back in 1992 when he offered Salman the lead role in 'Suryavanshi'. The movie didn't create much noise but Salman found pal in Vijay... Due to his closeness to Salman, Vijay was able to produce 'Veer' which again failed at the box-office.
Salman on occasion has left his dues when he has found that the producer is not able to pay due to losses.
