Unit sources reveal that, once while they were shooting in a Mumbai film studio, Rangita went up to Mallika on her arrival and told her to hurry up a bit for the day as the studio would not be available for them beyond some two three hours more, as there was some technical maintenance going to take place. Co-operating with her producer, Mallika decided to hurry up things and so also were her co-stars and other technicians present on the sets.
But as Mallika realised it would be impossible to complete all her scenes for the day at that particular studio, she decided to take the matter in her hand and try help her producer out. Mallika then directly went in to the studio authorities to request them to extend the deadline time as it was being problematic for the unit. But she was in for a rude shock when they flatly refused and told her that they would have loved to be but they won't as she has been misrepresented by her producer. They revealed to her that they had given the film production team a sort of an ultimatum to wrap up early in two three hours as the production team had not made payments for the last two days they had shot in their studio.
Enraged by the false talk done by Rangita, Mallika went directly to her and lambasted her in front of everyone for painting a wrong picture. All was finally settled down only after Rangita said sorry to Mallika over this matter. As for the shooting, they all had no option but to wrap it all up as soon as possible.
Mallika Sherawat once had a showdown with Rangita Nandy, the producer of her film, Ugly Aur Pagli on its sets when it was being shot.
