‘Gum’ Director, crew and cast
Shamoon Abbasi has written in an explosive Facebook post on January 11.
“I am seriously done supporting selfish, narcissistic and egoist producers and directors that call themselves the new talent,”
Newcomers Ammar Lasani and Kanza Zia are being gotten out for their amateurish and unscrupulous practices by the cast and group of their film. Everything started when Abbasi took to Facebook and shared how some industry insiders have been utilizing his name to acquire oodles of cash for feeble and replicated contents.
“These film-makers dragged me into these crappy projects by asking major discounts in the name of support. They messed up the scripts that they once agreed on, I won’t let my career and my name go down because you want to experiment on my behalf. I am done! No more using my shoulders for this one-night fame game of yours.”
The 45-year-old didn’t take names in his underlying post yet later, transparently blamed Ammar and Kanza for duplicating Gumm from a 2011 Hollywood film called Wrecked. In a live video on Sunday, the Waar star uncovered he was informed that just the opening arrangement of the film was somewhat aroused by the Adrien Brody-starrer.
“I’m not disclosing everything because Gumm flopped or because someone else dubbed for me in it, Once the film started shooting, the script was exactly like a Hollywood film. It changed completely since the directors first approached me.”
“Guam was my film. I could have simply stayed quiet! But I chose otherwise because there’s a lot our nation needs to know about black sheep roaming free in the film industry. They keep cheating, dodging, confusing and breaking the code of a fair business model.”
Jia wrote on social media. “Amaar Lasani and Kanza Zia approached us in March 2017 and literally begged us to sing in their upcoming film Gumm,” “We wrote, composed and sang two songs. We handed them over in a week’s time as they were in hurry. The decided amount for the film songs was far less than the fee we usually charge but due to their continued requests, we made the songs for them in the least amount possible.”
“We approached the directors to at least mention our names as singers, lyricists and music directors but they refused, saying they’ll follow their own strategy. Now, it’s been two days since Gumm was released but they still haven’t mentioned our names anywhere.”
