Music Composer's Widow Threatens to Sue Producer Over Lokhandwala Deal
Actress Vijayta Pandit, widow of music composer Aadesh Shrivastava, has threatened to drag Moti Sagar, son of legendary filmmaker Ramanand Sagar, to court over Rs 1.65 crore she claims he owes her.
A legal notice sent by the actress through Ameet Mehta of Solicis Lex says that Rs 1.65 crore was the token amount paid by Shrivastava to Sagar for a Lokhandwala bungalow in February 2015. But since the sale was never executed and the bungalow has since been sold to someone else, Vijayta Pandit must get the money back.
Sagar, however, denies he owes anything to Vijayta Pandit and claims that her late husband had, in fact, borrowed Rs 2.28 crore from him.
Not only do I not owe them anything, I will be soon filing a case to recover the money that is due to me.Moti Sagar, Producer

Sunil Grover on the Kapil Sharma Feud: I'm Here to Work, Not to Walk out of Shows
It’s been a month since Sunil Grover walked out of Kapil Sharma’s eponymous comedy show following a mid-air brawl on their way back from a live event in Melbourne. While the widely-reported incident sparked off countless speculations, Sunil isn’t ready to disclose what exactly happened. He only says he won’t be returning to The Kapil Sharma Show even though he doesn’t believe in holding grudges.
I’m here to work, not to have an argument with somebody and walk out of shows. I just want to make people laugh. Whatever happened was unfortunate, emergency landing ho gayi meri.Sunil Grover, Comedian
His unceremonious exit sparked three more walk-outs, by co-stars Ali Asgar, Chandan Prabhakar and Sugandha Mishra, who quit as a show of solidarity. Incidentally, ratings have plummeted since, with the show dropping out of the top 10 chart for the first time.
Ratings are not in anybody’s control. Even I have done a show (Mad in India on Star Plus), where the ratings didn’t meet expectations. If I was good with that system, I’d be working every day and doing 10 shows.
