Perhaps Anees Bazmee has the knack of signing films that do not take off later. The director who is enjoying the success of Ready seems to be in the middle of a financial jeopardy. He had signed a film Jeb Hamari, Maal Tumhara with Percept Pictures in 2006 for which he was paid Rs 51 lakh as the signing amount. Unfortunately for Percept, the film didn™t take off for reasons best known to Bazmee. Now, Percept has sent a legal notice to Bazmee asking him to return the signing amount, which despite much coaxing he didn™t.A source from Percept says, The production house kept approaching Bazmee but he never had time. The film failed to take off. And when Percept finally realised that the film won™t go on floors, they asked Bazmee to return the money. But he managed to evade the same. Not left with any option, the company sent a legal notice to him earlier this week.¯ The director, who is currently amidst scripting the sequel to No Entry, denies having received any notice. Yes, we were supposed to do the film. But it didn™t take off for various reasons. They paid me some money long time back. Although I haven™t received the notice yet I don™t think a big deal should be made of it. This is not the first time that a film has not been made. Shailendra Singh is a friend and I will sort out things with him,¯ he added calmly.
