Shah Rukh Khan’s Netflix Series Betaal Faces Plagiarism Charges, Marathi Writers Reach Court And Complain to SWA

Published

on



It was last week that the trailer of Netflix‘s new horror show Betaal dropped online creating a good buzz around. The show is backed by Shah Rukh Khan‘s Red Chillies Entertainment and that gave it an added weightage. However, seems like there could be a little trouble for the streaming giant and the makers of the show in taking it ahead. Marathi screenwriters Sameer Wadekar and Mahesh Gosawi have alleged that the show has lifted the story of their zombie film titled Vetaal. The writers say they had registered their script with the Screen Writers’ Association (SWA) and have also filed a complaint with them now.

While talking to Mid-Day recently, the writers said they had registered the script with the SWA last year and it was right after one year that SRK’s Betaal went on the floors in July 2019. He said they had gone to pitch the idea of their film to other production houses but not to Red Chillies Entertainment. “We hadn’t pitched it to Red Chillies Entertainment, so the onus isn’t on them, but on the platform that commissioned it. I haven’t been able to figure out how (the idea) reached them,” said Wadekar after their first hearing at the high court.

The writer added that they can make out 10 things from Betaal that are similar to what they wrote in their film Vetaal. Wadekar said, “We have depicted zombies as descendants of the Vetaal army from Shivaji’s era while, in Betaal, they are shown as belonging to the British era. We have written a sequence where the army dances to folk music during a procession. A similar scene is included in their trailer.” Also Read – Shah Rukh Khan’s New Series For Netflix Betaal Will Bring Chills Down Your Spine, Release Date Out

The court, meanwhile, has dismissed their plea of putting a stay on the show but has asserted that they can claim damages after proving that the show is plagiarised. Both Red Chillies and Netflix haven’t commented on the show yet.

The actor has revealed that he was arrested and zip-tied for protesting peacefully. 

Riverdale star Cole Sprouse has revealed that he was arrested during a George Floyd protest. The death of George Floyd has sparked outrage throughout the country. Celebrities have also come forward to support the Black Lives Matter moment. From posting on social media to taking part in the protests, celebrities are actively protesting the horrific death of Geroge Floyd.  Riverdale actor Cole Sprouse is one such celebrity. He took part in a protest on May 31st in Santa Monica California. The actor has now revealed that he was arrested and zip-tied for protesting peacefully.

Cole Sprouse shared the series of events that led to him being arrested on Instagram.

He wrote, “A group of peaceful protesters, myself included, were arrested yesterday in Santa Monica. So before the voracious horde of media sensationalism decides to somehow turn it about me, there’s a clear need to speak about the circumstances: Black Lives Matter. Peace, riots, looting, are an absolutely legitimate form of protest. the media is by nature only going to show the most sensational, which only proves a long standing racist agenda. I was detained when standing in solidarity, as were many of the final vanguard within Santa Monica. We were given the option to leave, and were informed that if we did not retreat, we would be arrested. When many did turn to leave, we found another line of police officers blocking our route, at which point, they started zip tying us.”

However, the actor refused to speak more about the subject. he wrote, “I’m (1) not well versed enough to do so, (2) not the subject of the movement, and (3) uninterested in drawing attention away from the leaders of the #BLM movement.”

Rishi Dev wishes co-star Mohena Kumari a speedy recovery from Covid-19

Actor Rishi Dev has wished a speedy recovery to his Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai co-star Mohena Kumari. The actor played Mohena’s on-screen husband on the popular show. He took to social media to send his best wishes after learning that Mohena had tested positive for COVID-19.

He wrote, “Just came to know about Mohena & her family…They are going through tough times but I know you all will recover faster…my prayers are with you all. Wishing everyone a speedy recovery.”

While Rishi Dev and Mohena Kumari have had their differences in the past, the actor was quick to wish her and her family a fast recovery.

Since the news of Mohena and her family testing positive for Covid-19 broke out, well wishes for the family have been pouring in. Mohena confirmed the news earlier.

“At first, her test came negative, so everyone was relaxed, which is why we didn’t do anything after that. Then we saw that the fever was not subsiding. All of us got tested and realised a lot of people in our house were affected without any symptoms as such. I mean, it’s all out there in the world anyway, so many people suffering so much, without coronavirus. That’s about it,” she told HT.

“I guess that’s why nobody understood. I know there is a lot of negative news going around here and there, which is very unfortunate, especially because my in-laws have been doing so much work for so many people. People have got the opportunity to malign us, but anyway, we have mild symptoms.”

Mohena took to Instagram to thank everyone for their good wishes.
