Readers may be aware of the ongoing battle between filmmaker Shirish Kunder and the Nepali director Aneel Neupane over the plot of Kunder’s recently released short film Kriti. For the uninitiated, after Shirish Kunder released his short film Kriti, Aneel Neupane wrote an open letter stating that the plot of Shirish Kunder’s Kriti was lifted from his Nepali short film titled BOB. To which, Shirish Kunder sent a legal notice to Aneel Neupane, in which he opposed the latter’s claims with ‘necessary proofs’.
The latest update of the duo’s battle is that, Shirish Kunder’s Kriti has now been taken off Youtube which now states ‘The video is no longer available due to copyright claim by Aneel Neupane’.
While repeated attempts to reach Shirish Kunder for the same proved futile, do watch this space for developments.
