"Dream Girl" Makers Accused Of Plagiarism By A Filmmaker

Imran Asif Fazal |Sep 06, 2019

The filmmaker has threatened to file a lawsuit if "Dream Girl" resembles the film he made and has demanded credits and royalty rights.

Dream Girl received a great response from the audience since its trailer was released. The film is slated for release on September 13.

Ayushmann Khurrana and Nushrat Bharucha's quirky comedy film has now landed into trouble after filmmaker Janak Toprani accused makers of Dream Girl of plagiarism.

The film has been directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa and has been produced by Ekta Kapoor.

According to Janak, the story of the film directed by Raaj Shaandilyaa resembles his 2017 released Call For Fun.

During the interview, the filmmaker also said that he approached Ekta Kapoor at Balaji Motion Pictures twice with his story but after she turned it down, he made the film with a different financer.

He further added that after watching the trailer, he approached the CEO of Balaji Motion Pictures, who in turn didn't respond to his calls.

During an interview with a media house, Toprani said, "After they let go of the project, I got a financier and made the movie last year. After the trailer released, we took a week to consult a few lawyers. Then, I tried to call Nachiket Pantvaidya, CEO, Balaji but he did not answer my call."

Janak went on to say that if Dream Girl film bears any resemblance to Call For Fun, he will file a legal case against the makers.

"If Dream Girl is similar to my film, I will file a legal case. I want credit as the writer and royalty rights," the filmmaker added.

When the director of Dream Girl, Raaj was quizzed about his issue, he stated that the script is his original creation and was written way back in 2010.

"The idea belongs to me and my co-writer since 2010. We have also registered it. If the concerned director's film was not commercially successful, why would anybody replicate his idea?," Raaj told.
