Guzaarish in copyright row?
These days it's become a trend of sorts for every big, eagerly awaited film to get embroiled in some controversy or the other close to its release. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Hrithik Roshan- Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Guzaarish too finds itself in an uncalled for controversy over a copyright issue just few days before release (Nov 19).
Apparently, a novelist, who goes by the name of Dayanand Raajan, has accused the writer of Guzaarish for lifting the theme of his new book for the plot of the movie. According to Raajan, Guzaarish's plot line and characters is similar to that of his yet-to-be published novel. Raajan is now threatening to file a case against the makers of the film over copyright issues.
One will have to wait and watch if he actually ends up taking the issue to court or decides to amicably sort the issue.
