Bajirao Mastani, Sanjay Leela Bhasali's magnum opus shooting has been stalled. This is the second time, the workers on the sets have revolted like this alleging non-payment of wages.
A sources revealed, "The issue has been going on for a long
time. The light technicians and spot boys were not paid. The
production team kept on delaying their payment and the workers were
continuing without their wages. The Allied Mazdoor Union decided
that they have had enough and launched a non-cooperation movement
in the morning."
The source further added that on giving some assurance that their payment would be cleared by evening the workers returned to sets within an hour, "But that was not to be. So, the workers resorted to a ceasework from 7 to 9 pm. Later, the production team gave them a cheque of nearly Rs 8.5 lakh to restart the shoot."
