Is 'New York' script plagiarized?

Yashraj Films Yashraj Films is facing accusations of plagiarism from a budding director and writer Suchita Bhatia who alleges that the banner’s latest film New York is based on a script written by her.

The movie credits Sandeep Shrivastav and Aditya Chopra for the story but Suchita claims the movie is based on a script called ‘Osama – A Love Story’ written by her. Bhatia says she got in touch with Aditya Chopra in August 2006 to narrate a few story ideas and he referred her further to director Arjun Sablok who invited her to Yashraj Studios to narrate the story in September 2006.

According to Bhatia, Sablok was impressed after hearing the story and told her he would get in touch with her. But she never got a call from him or Yashraj Films.




But after watching ‘New York’, which released on Friday, Bhatia says she was shocked to see that her script was made into a film without giving her due credit or even informing her.

Suchita Bhatia had got her script registered with Film Writers’ Association in 2006 and now she has filed a complaint against YRF for plagiarizing her script.

Meanwhile, the film’s director Kabir Khan says Suchita is an opportunist who’s using a popular film “to get cheap publicity and five minutes of fame”.

‘New York’ tells the story of three friends whose lives are changed forever after the 9/11 attacks on the US following which one of the friends is arrested as a terror suspect and tortured in prison.
