Marina Khan opens up about nonpayment of dues for Yaara Vey

Where’s my check?

Where’s my check? It’s a question too often asked by actors, who regularly have to wait, and wait, and wait – and wait – for payment for their work. The entertainment world is notorious for the slowness of payment. This remains a major issue in Pakistani cinema. Addressing this issue, veteran actor Marina Khan is not very happy with the release of upcoming Pakistani film Yaara Vey as the makers have not abided by the contractual obligations and have failed to pay her promised amount. Talking to Instagram, she said, “To all my Instagram followers. I am VERY UPSET that this movie is being released as I was NOT paid by the producers the full amount they promised me.” Responding to Marina’s claims, Beeline Productions said that they are looking into the matter of impending payments with their former production partners Elite Films. They wrote, “We do understand and acknowledge the concerns of Ms. Marina Khan… With earnest regards, we seek to clarify, that as the sole sponsors of Yaara Vey and honourable professionals, we believe in transparency and will not stand idly by to misconduct and malpractices in our, or our ventures name.”
