Bollywood: Quite a few Cases Of Plagiarism?
Nonetheless, this isn’t the primary time Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza’s work has been “allegedly” copied in Bollywood.

Sunny Nahal’s movie for Brham Darya’s ‘Temper Completely satisfied’ appeared strikingly much like the one directed by Qureshi.

At the moment of call-outs turning into straightforward and authorized motion being broached on the drop of a hat, one would assume that an trade as large as Bollywood can be extra cautious, or inventive. Borrowing ideas with out credit is an embarrassing transfer, and we hope we’ve seen the final of the identical from Bollywood.
