For now, Shirish Kunder has sent a legal notice to Aneel Neupane and asked for an apology. He has also suggested that not Kriti but BOB is guilty of copying.
Before Kriti, even Rajnikanth’s Kabali also got accused of copying its poster from Irfan Khan’s Madaari.
But later it was cleared that the poster which looked similar to that of Madaari, was actually not the official one and was just copied by a fan of Rajnikanth.
Before Kabali and Madaari’s controversy, even the song ‘Soch Na Sake‘ from the movie Airlift also raged such controversy in the country because the Punjabi singer Hardy Sandhu alleged Arijit Singh of copying this song without his permission.
And who can forget the famous superhero flick Krrish 3, which though couldn’t create a big controversy but still many people believed that the plot was actually copied from various American superhero movies like Superman, X-men, and Spiderman.
