The most absurd and unreasonable thing that a scriptwriter can do is use the names of books and movies as props in an inappropriate context. Uttar Pradesh's 81-year-old popular Hindi novelist Surender Mohan Pathak was shocked when he saw his bestselling crime novel Dhabba in the disappointingly slapdash sequel to the web series Mirzapur 2. Neither the producers Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar nor the Mirzapur writers had approached Pathak before using his novel in their series.
This in itself is a serious copyright infringement. But what was to follow was worse. Actor Khulbushan Kharbanda was seen reading the novel Dhabba. But the content, as voiced in a voiceover was extremely erotic and according to Surender Mohan Pathak, pornographic. "I had written none of what was attributed to me by the voiceover in Dhabba. Imagine a generation that is not familiar with my work seeing and hearing what is credited to me Mirzapur. They will think I am a sleaze writer," says Pathak. And he's right.
