Hungarian artiste and photographer Flora Borsi has accused the creative team of Judgemental Hai Kya of plagiarizing one of her images in a poster of the film.
And this time no one from the film’s team is trying to pass off the eerie likeness as a coincidence.
While everyone from the Judgemental Hai Kya team is tightlipped over the not-unfounded allegation of plagiarism, a topnotch filmmaker spoke off the record to this writer. “While habitual offenders in the business of rip-offs in our entertainment industry are careful about copyright laws pertaining to films, they still think they can get away with stealing poster designs. It happened with the poster of Saaho and now Judgementall Hai Kya.Our creative teams in Bollywood should know that laws pertaining to posters are just as equivocal about plagiarism as films.”
A member of the Judgementall Hai Kya team informs that the offending poster showing one-half of KanganaRanaut’s face covered by a cat, will be immediately withdrawn.
Just a few days prior to this scandal the new poster of the eagerly awaited Prabhas starrer Saaho was discovered by alert netizens to be copied from a poster from the image for a video game. The earlier poster of Saaho too was said to be “inspired”(read: copied) from a foreign source.
