Bollywood actor Salman Khan is not happy with the way a music channel is spreading negative report about his much-hyped film 'Ready' even before its release. The trade analysis carried out by the channel questioned the market viability of the film starring Salman and Asin Thottumkal.
It is said that Salman is upset because the channel raised questions like –'' Will 'Ready' meet the expectations? Has the price of the film been exaggerated to earn more profits?'' The report traced Bhushan Kumar's record in the recent past as a producer, quoting the failure of its films like' Karzzz', 'Kajra Re' and 'Patiala House'. The channel also expressed its doubts on 'Ready' following the failure of 'London Dreams', which also featured Salman and Asin.
“We had taken this channel to Court and they had to pay us a fine. Despite that they continued to flout rules, we again took legal action against them, the matter is freshly coming up for a hearing soon", quoted Ajay Kapoor, Director , T-Series. “We have stopped giving them software of all our songs. It"s their loss," he added.
However, Business Head of the channel Anurag Bedi has a different view all together. “Pray, why is Bhushan upset if he has already sold 'Ready'? The distributors who have bought the film should be worried. Whatever we have stated in our trade analysis of 'Ready' is purely factual. T-Series has not done well as a producer on the films which we have mentioned, how can that be disputed when we are also showing the facts and figures supporting our report?" he asked.
Ajay Kapoor, however, feels that it doesn't make sense to speculate on the fate of a film months before its release. He added that Salman is not happy with the negative publicity!
