Sunil alleges Anees-Mayur are trying to malign him
The feud between comedian Sunil Pal (left), director Anees Bazmee (inset), and his friend and associate Mayur Barot has taken an ugly turn. Earlier, Sunil accused the two of not paying him for performing at a function and threatened legal action. While Anees denies knowing about the deal between Mayur and Sunil, Mayur has gone on record saying that Sunil can’t ask for remuneration because he never performed at the private event. He also alleges that Sunil was drunk.
Mayur also points out that Sunil has dragged Anees’s name into this, as he is a wellknown person. “Anees sir had nothing to do with this. There was no discussion regarding remuneration. Also he got drunk at the event and didn’t perform, so how can he ask for money?” adds Mayur.
However, Sunil says that this is false. “I can prove that they are lying. Quite a few people from the industry were there who saw me performing. They must apologise publicly for maligning my name and also give me the money, that they promised. I am also planning to hold a press conference to put my side of the story to everyone.”
