'Stree' producer Raj & DK land in dispute with Dinesh Vijan over profits

11th December 2018

One of the super hit films of 2018 was Rajkummar Rao and Shraddha Kapoor starrer 'Stree' a 100 crore club film, was loved by the audience. Helmed by directed by Amar Kaushik and it is written by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. and bankrolled by Dinesh Vijan and Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. as 50-50 partners under their banners Maddock Films and D2R Films.

Currently Raj and DK are totally upset when it came to splitting profit and a source close to them said, "Trying to cheat someone of their money is one thing but to undermine their hard work is ridiculous! Stree is out and out Raj & DK's creation. Whether it was writing the script, story and screenplay, getting Amar Kaushik (their first AD on Go Goa Gone) to direct the film or attaching Rajkummar Rao to star in it."

The source further revealed, "Raj & DK were already underway with producing the film when Dinesh contacted them and convinced them to let him be part of the project. Everyone who worked on the film, the actors and the crew know their contribution to the film."

Reports speculate that over Rs 20 cr is due to Raj & DK but they haven't received a single rupee yet from Dinesh. The source concluded saying, "This was a passion project for Raj & DK, and they were not only overseeing the shoot on the sets throughout the shoot in Chanderi and Bhopal but were also leading every single process from casting, finding the crew, recce, shooting to editing, music, mixing and the final prints."
