Qazi Touqeer dragged to court

Qazi Touqeer is currently slogging it out in Sarkaar Ki Duniya. However, a bigger threat awaits him in the real world. This comes in the form of producer Nazim Rizvi filing a case against him for not honouring his contract.

Qazi Touqeer dragged to court

After winning Fame Gurukul, the singer and actor had signed a contract for three films with Rizvi’s Whispering Shadows Entertainment. However, Touqeer vanished after nearly completing the first film Take off. Apparently, Rizvi was shocked when he saw the actor in Real TV show Sarkaar Ki Duniya. Rizvi has now filed cases against Touqeer, Real TV and Miditech – the producers of Sarkaar Ki Duniya.

Rizvi says, “In 2007 Qazi signed a contract with us for three films. The first film titled as Take Off is ninety per cent complete. The actor was needed for the rehearsal of a song but he fell ill and we admitted him to the hospital. Doctors advised him a bed rest of 3 months. Recently we called him again for the song but he wasn’t available and we were told that he is out of town. But I was shocked when on 2 March somebody called me up to tell me that Qazi is doing a show called Sarkar Ki Duniya on Real TV.”

“This is appalling as I wasn’t aware of the whole thing. There is a mention about my film on the site of Sarkar Ki Duniya which I happen to check. This means that the producers were aware that Qazi was doing my film and hence on moral grounds they should have approached me before taking him onboard. There was a hearing two days ago but Qazi didn’t make it. A representative of Real TV was present at the hearing. The next hearing is on 17 April. I demand that he’s removed immediately from the show”, concludes Nazim.

Sunil Lulla, director, Real Global Broadcasting, said, “Whispering Shadows Entertainment had applied for ad interim injunction for broadcasting of Sarkaar Ki Duniya. This injunction was refused by the court.”

Sonaji Nagre, lawyer of Nazim Rizvi, informs, “We have lodged a complaint against Qazi, Real TV and Miditech production. We demand that the show should not be aired anymore. Qazi was contractually bound by us. The contract stated that he cannot appear anywhere else before completing our three movies. The nature of the case is civil and currently is in City Civil Court. We are now planning to move the Mumbai High Court. The hearing of the same is on 17 April.”
