Asrani wrote, “It was only the day after I finished the first cut of the film that Hansal called me to meet. He informed me nervously that Kangana is turning director and therefore has demanded a co writer credit. I naturally had a shit fit and feeling shocked and betrayed, I refused to give in. For 2 months, he and his co produce Shailesh tried to arm twist me into giving her a co writer credit. The details of which I will reserve for the future. I finally gave into an additional writing credit, but only because they claimed their film would be stuck if I didn’t do so. But I refused to give her a co writer credit, and we signed a letter where they promised me the same.” Well, read the entire post write here.
Contrary to reports Hansal Mehta told to an entertainment daily, ” Apurva is a fantastic talent and we’ve all come together to make a wonderful film. We have made films together in the past and done work that we’re very proud of. I have a lot of regard and love for him and his talent. The credits were shared with grace, dignity and respect for each other as artists and our commitment to making ‘Simran’ a special film experience”. Now we wonder who is speaking the truth?
