'Nasha' copy of 'Supermodel' poster, alleges Veena Malik
IANS [ Thu, Jul 18, 2013 ]
- Mumbai, July 18 (IANS) The first look of Veena Malik-starrer "Supermodel" was released Wednesday and the poster of the film bears a clear resemblance to Poonam Pandey's "Nasha" poster, but the former claims her's is original.
"I want to start by saying that look and sequences are normally copied by other films but I think this is the first time when our film's poster has been copied. You have probably seen it in 'Nasha' (poster)," Veena said here.
Veena hopes the scenes of the film are at least safe.
"When people start copying you at the start of your career, you feel kind of happy that people are copying you. So our poster has already been copied and I hope our film's sequences are safe till its release. After the release if someone copies our scenes, it would probably be a great honour for us," she said.
Director of "Supermodel" Navin Batra too claims they have proof that they made the original poster.
"We designed this poster two months back when the shoot was still on. Our poster has been copied by 'Nasha'. We have the copy, Facebook posts and date proofs. I request the media to highlight this issue," he said.
The film also features Ashmit Patel and has been completely shot in Fiji.
When contacted, "Nasha" director Amit Saxena told IANS: "The posters of 'Nasha' were designed six-seven months back. I don't know why they woke up now. The digital posters were released almost seven months back. In fact, our designs were ready a year back, so there is no question of copying."
