Just months after actresses Ramya and Pooja Gandhi created a lot of buzz in the media over their unpaid dues, another Kannada actress is making news for the same reason. It is none other than Sharmila Mandre. The Kannada star has decided to skip the promotional activities of the movie Dhan Dhana Dhan until its producer clears her dues.
In an interview with the DNA earlier this week, actress Sharmila Mandre said that producers Santhosh Singh and Wasim D had promised to settle her dues a week before the release of the film Dhan Dhana Dhan. Even though the movie would be released today (June 24), she had not got any news about her payment.
Sharmila Mandre claimed that the film bosses had to pay her Rs. 4 lakh. So she approached the Karnataka Cine Artistes' Association and producer Rockline Venkatesh, who reprimanded the producers and told Dhan Dhana Dhan bosses to settle her dues a week before its release. “I'm not going to be part of any promotional activity of the film till they settle my dues," the DNA quoted the actress as saying.
However, Sharmila Mandre is playing female lead alongside Lovely star Prem Kumar in the movie Dhan Dhana Dhan, which has been directed by Ramnath Rigvedi. The actress says that she is going to sign the film Khushi Khushi, which features her opposite Prajwal Devaraj and Tharun Chandra.
