Jackky Bhagnani faces Salary Non-Payment Accusations f

"to exploit this passion to such an extent should not be acceptable."

Several crew members have accused Jackky Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment of not paying them on time.

One crew member, Ruchita Kamble, also accused the company of unprofessionalism and urged people not to work there.

Pooja Entertainment is owned by Jackky and his father Vashu Bhagnani.

In a lengthy post, she wrote:

“Not the one to ever make such posts but sometimes people need to be ousted!

“Seeing my team and the crew I worked with struggle day in and out to just get hold of our own hard-earned money has compelled me to make this post.

“Read the sheer frustration of these young girls who have beautifully stated the absolute disregard @pooja_ent has and the sheer unprofessional, unethical behaviour that we all have been tolerating for way too long.

“Being dodged from person to another just to ask for our own money which was promised to be cleared within 45-60 working days post completion which in itself is also unprofessional but the crew graciously agreed as we are a bunch driven by a passion for filmmaking.

“But to exploit this passion to such an extent should not be acceptable.

“There is no hope of getting paid but this post is to make the countless others aware of these fraudulent practices by @pooja_ent @jackkybhagnani @vashubhagnani and vouch to not work with them.

“PS – Urge my friends to kindly reshare this post and ask other filmmakers to do so too.

“And if you are associated with any media houses who can escalate it or cover this that will be great.”

Another person named Vaishnavi Paralikar had detailed poor working practices but did not mention the production house.

She claimed: “I did a movie 2 years ago with a very well-known production house.

“Me along with at least 100 crew members are awaiting our payments (2-month salaries) since 2 years.”

“Meanwhile, actors have been paid immediately because they are ACTORS.

“None of the producers have an answer to our question, Where is my hard-earned money? Most importantly, when can I get my hard-earned money?”

Social media users came together to show their support.

One comment read, “It’s happening with me as well I’m following up on my payment and the producers don’t respond to the call.”

Another said: “They’re indeed the worst. They think flying you to an outdoor location is enough. After that cant, even arrange food for the crew.

“Will even keep workers’ payments on hold. Sadly, a lot depends on your HOD.”
