A group of 10 Baiga tribal dancers from Dindori have accused filmmaker Prakash Jha of shortchanging them by reneging on the promise to give them work in his film,Chakravyuh.

The troupe alleged that Jha had called them to Bhopal for a shoot but when they reached here they learnt that another group had been hired,reportedly for much less payment than what was promised to them. The troupe met CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan today.

Jha said there seemed to be a communication gap between the troupe and his production unit. “We did speak to their agent but no confirmation was given,” he said,adding that it was only after getting a call from the CM’s house that he came to know of the allegations,and that the agent was paid Rs 25,000.

The Congress has demanded that Jha be booked under the SC/ST Act.
