Producer-distributor Bharat Patel has alleged that Sunny Leone has refused to return a signing amount that was given to her in 2014 for the item song in his movie ‘Patel Ki Punjabi Shadi’ starring Rishi Kapoor and Paresh Rawal in lead role. But the story doesn’t stop here, there is another side of the story as well.
The movie released in 2015 and film was supposed to feature a dance number by Sunny Leone. But due to a certain situation, she was unable to perform the dance number and neither did she return the signing amount paid to her for performing the dance number. However, close sources of Sunny, has a different story to tell in this matter.
According to the deal, Sunny was supposed to be paid a total of Rs 40 lakh for the song-Rs 5 lakh as signing amount, Rs 5 lakh after the look test, Rs 10 lakh during rehearsals and the remaining Rs 10 lakh during the promotion, says Patel. He further added that when he approached Sunny to do a special dance number, her husband Daniel Weber, who manages her work, discussed the monetary details with him.
Sunny was paid Rs 5 lakh as the signing amount but Sunny did not respond to the production team’s calls and messages for further discussion on dates with other actors and other necessary details that needed to be finalized before the shoot.
With regards to that Patel has sent a legal notice to Sunny in 2017 to get the signing amount back, but no response he gets for the same. But a close source to Sunny rubbishes such news and said that the Sunny was ready to shoot for the song and had finalized the specific dates for it as well.
