Controversies‘Wah Taj’ Film Controversy
Shreyas, along with the makers of the Marathi film ‘Wah Taj’ was issued a legal notice for spreading misleading information among the people for the sake of the promotion of the film. The team of the ‘Wah Taj’ distributed the posters in Agra and nearby cities. On the posters, it was written that the Taj Mahal will be closed to tourists from 23 September 2016. [3]India Today During an interview, while giving the clarification on the incident, Shreyas said,
"I got to know that there has been a legal notice sent to the makers of the film, but it was just a part of the movie promotions and marketing strategy, I don’t understand why it is taken to another level by blowing it up.”

Accused of Theft
During the coronavirus lockdown in 2021, the Indian film producer Rahul Bhandare filed a complaint against Shreyas and Suresh Sawant (Indian film director) for using his property without his permission and violating the guidelines of the pandemic. [4]Woman’s Era While talking to the reporters, Rahul said,
"Due to Corona’s influence theatres were closed, during the period of lockdown. Therefore, the set of my play ‘Albatya Galbatya’ was placed in Praveen Bhosale’s godown at Kolsa Bunder, Kala Chowki. However, the set was stolen from the godown by Suresh Sawant without any preconceived notions and was used for the one-act shoot of Shreyas Talpade’s OTT platform. A commercial shooting was carried out at Swatantryaveer Savarkar Natyagriha illegally using the set of Albatya’s play ‘Galbatya’ in violation of government rules during the lockdown, even though theatres across Maharashtra are banned.”

  • After completing his graduation, he started performing in theatre plays. Initially, he used to perform in 30-35 theatre plays in a day. During an interview, while remembering his struggling days, he said,

    I remember going to Mukta Arts office in Bandra to drop off my pictures because Subhash Ghai was casting for a film and I was angling for a role, not for the lead. While climbing those stairs, I saw posters of his blockbusters including Karma and Ram Lakhan and thought, ‘Oh God, when will I have a poster like this?’ A few years later, they called to cast me in Apna Sapna Money Money and as I climbed up the stairs, I saw a big poster of Iqbal on the wall. That moment was both fulfilling and humbling.”

    Here I was, a middle-class guy whose wedding cards had gone out, being told to cancel it; I didn’t know what to do. It was after a lot of convincing, and assuring him that I would keep the wedding under wraps, that he let me have a day off. When Subhash ji saw her (his wife) too many times at screenings and enquired, Nagesh told him who she really was. He refused to believe I was married. To him, I was an 18-year-old boy who had a child marriage and was not even feeding his wife, making her faint (laughs).”
