Production at Muvhango studios allegedly came to a standstill for four days as angry actors and support staff downed tools on Monday after their salaries were not paid.
Production company Word of Mouth Pictures, owned by Duma Ndlovu, failed to pay the crew their September salaries last Friday.
Sunday World was told that actors and staff including make-up artists, scriptwriters, wardrobe managers and cameramen embarked on a stayaway from Monday to Thursday and refused to shoot all the upcoming episodes unless their salaries were immediately paid.
Ndlovu repudiate claims of a strike, saying the company had sent cast members text messages telling them not to come to work because there was no money to pay them.
