Ahead of Omerta’s release, as per reports, Supreme Court appointed arbitrator Samrat Sen on April 27, 2018, directed Hansal Mehta to deposit the earnings from the film in a separate bank account of a nationalised bank in an arbitration petition filed by Amit Agarwal’s ‘Adarsh Telemedia Pvt. Ltd’
Hansal Mehta had approached Kolkata based ‘Adarsh Telemedia Pvt. Ltd’ when his previous directorial venture Simran ran into financial trouble, to lend a sum of Rs 8.3 crore against a minimum guarantee to complete and release the film. Reportedly, despite repeated reminders from Amit Agarwal, Hansal Mehta failed to acknowledge them and instead, started working on his new projects. Adarsh Telemedia accordingly filed a case against Hansal Mehta along with Paramhans Creations Pvt. Ltd and Karma Features Pvt. Ltd and got a favourable order.
