On Wednesday morning, the short film starring Radhika Apte and Manoj Bajpayee was revealed to have been removed from YouTube after being accused of plagiarism. Now, a Twitter user points out that the poster of the film also looks remarkably like that of 2015 Japanese film Gekijourei
Kriti had reportedly crossed more than 2.5 million views before it was taken down. Nepali filmmaker Aneel Neupane, who alleged that Kriti's plot was lifted from BOB, tweeted: "Those who seek Kriti will find it removed. Thank you all for the immense support"
"Assuming your position is correct that the two films are so similar, then it is you who has infringed our client's copyright," the notice to Nepali filmmaker Aneel Neupane read.
In a post on Facebook, Kathmandu-based Aneel Neupane has alleged that Shirish Kunder 'practically stole the plot' of BOB, which was released on Vimeo seven months ago
