Actress Upasana Singh, who played the role of aunt in ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, moved a local court on August 4 against Miss Universe Harnaz Sandhu, alleging that she did not honor the agreement to promote a Punjabi film. The door was knocked on. Actress-producer Upasana Singh has filed a civil suit in Chandigarh district court, seeking damages from Harnaaz Sandhu for alleged breach of contract by her. Sandhu played the lead role in ‘Bai Ji Kuttange’. Meanwhile, Upasana has told that she has a debt of one crore 60 lakh rupees.
Harnaaz stopped replying
Upasana Singh told The Indian Express, “My film was scheduled to release on May 27 and it was a very special day for us when Harnaaz won the Miss Universe title, we party together. Everyone knows how close I was to him. When I told him that the film’s promotion dates are around 27th May, he stopped answering my calls. I have sent messages and mails also, but there is no response. I also sent him the poster of the film and every actor shares the poster of the film on social media, but he didn’t even do that and I found it really strange.
postponed the release of the film
Upasana further said, ‘I also requested him but I felt that maybe if he has won the title now, then for some reason he will not be able to do so. So I shifted the release date of the film to 19th August but even after that there was no response from Harnaaz. Harnaaz started ignoring everyone in my friend circle. Someone called him and said that there is a show in Dubai, he talked but when the topic of my film started, he cut the call. ,
Upasana in debt of one crore 60 lakhs
Upasana finally said, ‘I have sent him a notice that if he does not give me the dates, I will file a case against him. Because I have lost the distributors of the film, because earlier they knew that Harnaaz is a film. Others had to invest money in the film, not me. Today, I have a debt of one crore 60 lakhs to release this film, only because of Harnaaz, because of his retreat, other people have also fallen behind. My film is getting delayed and whatever posters, promotions etc. happened earlier, all that money has been wasted. I have debt. I never thought she would do this to me.
what is the matter
Upasana had told reporters outside the court, “I gave Harnaaz a chance to act in the film Bai Ji Kuttange. Not only this, I also made ‘Yaara Diyan Poo Baran’, in which Harnaaz has played the role of a heroine.
Upasana Singh claimed that Sandhu, the 2021 Miss Universe, was supposed to personally make herself available to promote the film as part of her agreement with Santosh Entertainment Studios LLP, but she refused to give a date for the same. Upasana said, ‘I gave her a chance when she was not Miss Universe. I have spent a huge amount on this film. It is not a small budget film.
Who is Harnaaz Sandhu
On the other hand, Harnaz Sandhu has not yet commented on Upasana Singh’s allegations. Significantly, Harnaz Sandhu was crowned Miss Universe in an event held in Israel last December. Earlier only two Indians – Sushmita Sen (1994) and Lara Dutta (2000) have won the Miss Universe title. Ever since winning the title, Harnaaz remains in the news for one reason or the other.
