Breach of Contract
Hassan Waqas Rana was recently booked under an FIR (First Information Report) with the Pakistani police by the director of Waar, Bilal Lashari for keeping Waar's profits for himself. Apparently, he transferred all cinema earnings to his personal account. Hassan Rana was later honorably acquitted of all the allegations leveled against him, both by the Pakistani police as well as the courts of Pakistan, saying that the said allegation was baseless and no evidence to prove the claim of Bilal Lashari was produced at any forum.
