SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR developed the story KOKH and discussed it with her
Executive Producer RAHUL RAVIKUMAR JOSHI, after which she appointed
ASSISTANT DIRECTOR Mr. BAKHTIYAR BAIG as director of VITARA PICTURES’ debut
As she promised AD Mr. BAKHTIYAR BAIG that she would give him the
opportunity to direct her debut short film.
Producer SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR, Executive Producer RAHUL RAVIKUMAR
JOSHI, and Production Manager SAWAN DATTARAJ LAUD comprised the VITARA
PICTURES core team.
Mr. SHRAVAN SHETTY made his debut as a co-producer and actor. The lead cast
included FENIL UMRIGAR, SHRAVAN SHETTY, and NEHA DHAVSE.
VITARA PICTURES & ASHISH SINGH handled the key casting.
The music team for the short film KOKH consisted of SAWAN DATTARAJ LAUD

SHIVKUMAR JALIHAL (co-composer).
The other crew assembled by AD BAKHTIYAR BAIG included DOP, junior artist
MOHIT SINGH, and spot.
The shoot took place in NASHIK, MAHARASHTRA, around the end of November.
Executive Producer RAHUL RAVIKUMAR JOSHI had fulfilled all of the needs, from
permissions to BAKHTIYAR’s crew requests. Because the shoot had a strict
timetable. BAKHTIYAR BAIG and his crew did not stick to the schedule.
squandering the production’s funds and time.
When Executive Producer RAHUL RAVIKUMAR JOSHI sought the expenses,
BAKTIYAR refused to hand over the bills and budget of the shoot. Bakhtiyar had a
specified budget granted by the production house since Executive Producer
RAHUL RAVIKUMAR JOSHI was handling meetings, song recording and other
projects with Producer SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR at the same time.
Bakhtiyar was in responsible of payments for his crew, including DOP, and agreed
that he had paid all of his team’s payments. He pledged to deliver over the final
raw cut of the film to producer within 15 days. When the producer demanded the
film, he stated that the DOP’s money was pending, which the production house
had already paid.
When the producer , SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR asked about the pending payment
with DOP RUSHIKESH MARATHE, he stated that Bakhtiyar had not paid the entire
sum specified. Then Executive Producer RAHUL RAVIKUMAR JOSHI contacted
Baktiyar about this unprofessional shambles and the missing of Rs 2,07,000
invoices, which he denied and blocked both PRODUCER & EXECUTIVE PRODUCER
after a series of reasons. He also threatened both of them with political power if
they sought to meet him over his place to discuss an positive outcome.
The short film was supposed to be handed over to VITARA PICTURES at the end of
DECEMBER 2021, but it was received by the Executive producer and producer in
MAY 2022 when they went to PUNE to receive it from DOP RUSHIKESH MARATHE,
because he was threatening to delete the original clip. It was unedited film it had
only raw clips of shoots ,when producer had accepted to pay the pending amount
with extra loss. After receiving the shortfilm a confirmation mail was sent by DOP
RUSHIKESH MARATHE to avoid the leaks .
Bakhtiyar has not provided invoices since December till today and has used BTS
from the short film KOKH on his social media accounts under his banner, thanking
only “HIS” crew. He did not have the decency to mention the name of the
production company VITARA PICTURES and producer’s name SNEHA DANIEL
SHIVAPUR, who kept her promise . He was warned in every manner a production
firm could, but his arrogance destroyed the short film’s charisma by exposing the
story and video clips on social media under his banner.
VITARA PICTURES is the sole sufferer as a result of such unprofessional persons.
SNEHA DANIEL SHIVAPUR warns everyone to be wary of such fraudulent persons.
