Madhur Bhandarkar sued for plagiarism



Here's what your favourite Bollywood celebrities are tweeting.

Controversies and Madhur Bhandarkar go hand in hand.

The filmmaker, who recently got relief from the Supreme Court in a rape case, has now been sued by actor-turned-author Seema Seth for plagiarising with Fashion after four years of its release and has sought compensation of Rs 2.5 crore.

'Now someone has gone to court for the copyright infringement of my film FASHION after 4 years and demanding 2.5 crores... In the past my films PAGE 3,TRAFFIC SIGNAL and JAIL claiming to be their concepts were dismissed by legal courts and writers association,' Bhandarkar tweeted.

In the plea, Seth has claimed that Madhur stole the idea for Fashion from her book El-Dorado, published 3 months prior to the release of the film on October 29, 2008.

However, Madhur thinks Heroine will get sued too in future by people who want 15 seconds of fame. 'I am sure they will be ready with their petition for my upcoming film #HEROINE also which is in making right now for their 15secs of Fame,' he added.
