Ramesh Taurani sues Deepika Padukone

Filmmaker Ramesh Tarauni has called Deepika Padukone’s action ‘unprofessional’ and ‘unethical’ as she left ‘Race 2’ after six days of shooting. Ramesh is very miffed with Deepika and he has filed a complaint against the dusky beauty with CINTAA (Cine & TV Artistes Association).

Ramesh Taurani says, "I have been a part of the Hindi cinema industry for 25 years. I have made several blockbusters. But I have never faced a situation like this before. Our directors and the other actors are extremely annoyed with her."

CINTAA has informed the actress about the complaint lodged by Ramesh Taurani. A source close to Taurani told, "He did not want to take such an extreme step. He waited for Deepika to change her mind. But she was adamant. She was not interested in doing Race 2 anymore."

Explaining Deepika's course of action, a close friend of the actress said, "She will not return to Race 2. She will present her case to CINTAA soon. Both parties will be heard. She will return the signing amount soon. And as for the compensation, she is open to discussions."

Senior producer Pahlaj Nihalani explains, "If Taurani has filed a complaint against Deepika, she will have to honour the dates which she had allotted to him. If she has given the same dates to any other producer, she cannot shoot for the other project."
