Hirwani accused of copying


Munnabhai MBBS26-year old young and aspiring scriptwriter Ajay Gupta is accusing director Raju Hirwani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra of having lifted his concept for their sequel Munabhai Meets Mahatma Gandhi. Gupta said that he had left the concept note behind when he had gone to Chopra office. “I had approached several production houses with my
story Chopra was one of them. I had been working on a film called Gandhi And The Kid where the kid was a 20-year-old. From what I have heard about the film and what reliable sources have told me the film sounds to be very similar to my concept.” Ajay Gupta has filed a complaint with the Film Writes Association and will take legal action if need be. Raju Hiran however rubbishes rumours. “He is just trying to gain cheap publicity. We are slogging our butt here to work on the script of the film. If he has a problem we can clear out with the Writer’s Association or in the court.”
