Shatrughan Sinha has filed a complaint against MAHUA

Angry at not being paid his fee for hosting the Bhojpuri KBC, Shatrughan Sinha has filed a complaint with CINTAA against the regional channel airing the quiz show . Shatrughan Sinha is not a happy man. And on the Shotgun's line of fire are the producers of the Bhojpuri version of Kaun Banega Crorepati. Sinha, who had been hosting the show on a regional television channel has still not received the fee promised to him. Having waited for his dues for a long time now, Sinha has finally filed a complaint at CINTAA (Cine & TV Artistes Association). A source informed "Sinha wasn't just perturbed about his own dues. Having learnt that four of his guests on the show - Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Govinda, Ravi Kishan and Sonakshi Sinha, have also not received the money they won, he finally decided to lodge the complaint." Sinha, in fact, made one last effort to get his dues and speak to the channel. However, the channel refused to comply and Sinha went ahead and lodged the complaint on November 23, 2011. "The complaint that has been registered against the channel with CINTAA deals only with Sinha's dues. As a rule, the star himself/herself has to lodge a complaint for the problems faced by him/her. And that's exactly why Sinha couldn't complain on behalf of Dharamji, Hema Malini, Govinda, Ravi Kishan and his own daughter Sonakshi Sinha." added the source. Confirming that Dharmendra and she too have not received their dues from the channel, Hema Malini added, "We are thinking of filing a complaint as well." "It is so embarrassing when you don't receive the winning amounts that has already been declared for charity," added a source close to Hema Malini. When contacted, CINTAA President Dharmersh Tiwari did not deny the story and added, "We forward such complaints to the party who is supposedly at fault. We then await their reply. We can talk about any action being taken for or against the complainants only on a later date."
