Reema Kagti, Sanjay Gupta engage in war of words

There seems to have been a war of words taking place between filmmakers Reema Kagti and Sanjay Gupta. In an interview to a newspaper, Reema accused Sanjay Gupta of starting the allegations that Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara (which was co-written by Reema and Zoya Akhtar) is a copy of a foreign film. She further went on to add that Gupta had not made a single original film in his career and hence had no right to talk about originality.

Not one to take things lying down, Sanjay Gupta lambasted Reema on Twitter. Gupta tweeted, “Poor Reema Kagti, is desperate to create buzz for her thanda film. If using my name helps, so be it. Ms. Kagti you’ve paid lakhs to the paper to publicize your film and yet it’s me they highlight. No highlights in your film to talk about? Ms. Kagti why were you quiet at the time this controversy came out? Was it because you didn’t want to hamper your award season? Ms. Kagti if I’ve been inspired I have openly admitted and not hidden behind a curtain of fake originality. Ms. Kagti most of the films I’ve made have gotten 4 star ratings. But if not original I don’t shamelessly lobby and clamor for awards. And finally, Ms. Kagti I am available whenever you ask to debate the originality of ZNMD on an open stage.”

Well, if this battle of words will end here or turn into a big controversy is something that only time will tell.

    Sanjay Gupta claimed that ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ is a rip-off of ‘Fandango’, a 1985 movie starring Kevin Costner

    “Five college buddies from the University of Texas circa 1971 embark on a final road trip odyssey across the Mexican border before facing up to uncertain futures, in Vietnam and otherwise.”

    Have anyone seen the movie?

    Cheap Publicity stunt by Aamir and Reema.
    The marketing genius looks like has ran out of ideas and now is resorting to these CHEAP tricks to popularize this THANDA movie. :P

    Znmd was a copy – Zoya Akhtar
    Barfi was a copy – Anurag
    Talaash was a copy of Kahaani… now they reshot and changed it.

    Sab PSEUDOS ki poll khul rahi hai …. lolzzz…:D

      Sanjay Gupta is flop director but this doesn’t answer the logical question that he is asking … “Ms. Kagti why were you quiet at the time this controversy came out”

      Why is that Drug Addict – Reema Kagti making noise now??

      Cheap Publicity. Maybe scared of Khiladi786. :D

    In bollywood quality synonyms with Aamir. wheather Talaash worked or not at BO, it will be a quality product. Thats the confidence Aamir shares with his fans that they trust him blindly bcoz of his selection of work. a true genious of bollywood, i rate him right up with the greats like dilip kumar and guru dut, amitabhs, srks , salmans are no way near this genius.
    Talaash will sprung a huge surprise not in terms of quality which we know is a definite thing with aamir movie but box office wise it will take a thriller genre to new heights.
