Akshay Kumar Steps In to Support Jackky Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment Amid Financial Crisis

Akshay Kumar Halts Payments to Support Crew Amid Financial Troubles at Jackky Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment

Jackky Bhagnani, who manages Pooja Entertainment with his father Vashu Bhagnani, has recently addressed reports of non-payment to various artists. The production house has been facing financial difficulties, but actor Akshay Kumar has come forward to offer his support.

Akshay Kumar to the Rescue

In a statement released on Monday, Jackky revealed that Akshay Kumar has decided to hold off on his payments for the film “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” until the entire cast and crew are paid.

“Akshay sir met me recently to discuss this issue. Upon learning about the situation, Akshay sir didn’t hesitate to step forward and show his support for the crew. He has insisted that his payments be placed on hold until every single crew member working on our projects receive their full and final payment,” Jackky said.

Gratitude and Appreciation

Jackky expressed deep gratitude for Akshay Kumar’s understanding and support during these challenging times. “We are incredibly grateful for Akshay sir’s understanding and his willingness to stand with us during this time. The movie business hinges on strong relationships, and that is the spirit we strive to foster in the industry,” he added.

Payment Issues with Cast and Crew

Last week, it came to light that several actors from “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” had not received their payments. The actors include Sonakshi Sinha, Tiger Shroff, Alaya F, and Manushi Chhillar. Additionally, the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) president, BN Tiwari, claimed that Vashu Bhagnani owes over ₹65 lakh to crew members who worked on three of his films: “Mission Raniganj,” “Ganapath,” and “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan.”

High Budget Film Falls Short at Box Office

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” stars Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff alongside Prithviraj Sukumaran, Alaya F, Manushi Chhillar, and Sonakshi Sinha. The film also features Ronit Bose Roy and Manish Chaudhari. Released in theaters on April 10 this year, the movie was made on a high budget of almost ₹350 crore. However, it performed poorly at the box office, registering a business of only ₹59.17 crores.
