Hirani accused of lifting story idea

Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra and director Rajkumar Hirani were to make a sequel to Munnabhai MBBS in the form of Munnabhai BALLB. But the script didn’t work out and they finally zeroed in on another story idea of Munnabhai Meets Mahatma Gandhi. But now, even this script is in problem. A 26-year-old screenwriter Ajay Gupta claims that the storyline for this Chopra-Hirani film has been lifted from his story idea that he had left behind at Chopra’s office in April 2004. Gupta had left his concept note at Chopra’s office for their perusal and now claims that the filmmakers have lifted his idea. However Hirani rubbishes Gupta’s claims and adds that it is a shoddy publicity gimmick.
