Bollywood producer Ramesh Taurani has filed a complaint against actress Deepika Padukone with cine-associations for quitting Tips Films' "Race 2" at the eleventh hour.

Deepika is said to have made an exit from the project following a Kollywood offer, and that too after having shot for a week.

The decision didn't go down too well with Taurani, who filed a complaint with the Cine & TV Artists Association (CINTAA) and Association of Motion Pictures & TV Programme Producer of India (AMPTPP).

Deepika has been informed by CINTAA about the complaint.

As per procedural norms, if an artist fails to respond to a complaint or grievance, the case then passes on to the FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees).If still not addressed, the artist is then liable to face a Non-Cooperation Directive.

Explains senior producer Pahlaj Nihalani: "If Taurani has filed a complaint against Deepika, she will have to honour the dates which she had allotted to him. If she has given the same dates to any other producer, she cannot shoot for the other project."

An upset Taurani had said that he has been a part of the Hindi cinema industry for 25 years, but never faced such a situation before.

"Our directors and the other actors are extremely annoyed with her. Tips as a company in its last 25 years has never had a dispute with anyone in this industry, there is no single case in the association which involves us," he said.

Produced by Tips, the action thriller ‘Race 2’ is scheduled for a November release.
