Vikas Bahl accused of copyright infringement

While he has been riding high on the success of his latest flick Queen, it seems that filmmaker Vikas Bahl has been accused of copying the premise of this film from a yet to be released film titled Phir Zindagi, written by Abhigyan Jha.

Jha stated that Vikas who was shown Phir Zindagi in 2006 while he was working with UTV Spotboy adapted the story of his film where a girl goes for her honeymoon alone for his film Queen. Though Jha claimed that the screenplay differs slightly, he alleged that some scenes have indeed been taken from his film. While the producer-director of Phir Zindagi, Parvati Balagopalan too supports Jha's statements, she also claimed to have felt a sense of betrayal with this film. However, unlike Parvati who is not in favour of going legal, a miffed Jha has decided to take some action against Bahl over this matter.

Aware of this situation, Vikas however asked everyone to see Phir Zindagi to decide whether there is any truth to these accusations.
