SpicyIP Tidbit: Guzaarish in Copyright Controversy

Bollywood’s affinity for copyright controversies continues with the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed, Hrithik Roshan-Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer, Guzaarish embroiled in a copyright dispute with novelist, Dayanand Raajan, alleging that the writers of Guzaarish lifted the theme of his book and that the film’s plot bears a striking resemblance to the novel’s storyline and also in terms of the characters in the film.

The Indian Express reports that as of now, the producers of the film have been served with a seven-day notice period. The novelist is expected to go to court to demand a stay order on the film. SpicyIP will track this case closely and bring updates as and when they flow in.
