Looks like the plagiarism accusations on the makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha is not going to end anytime soon. The makers have already been slammed with two legal notice and now another Jaipur-based filmmaker, Praatik Sharma, has moved to the Rajasthan court claiming that the makers of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha have allegedly lifted the punchline and the subject from his film Gutrun Gutar Gun.
According to Praatik a line in Toilet – Ek Prem Katha is same to the one in his film Gutrun Gutar Gun that is, “Aurat shadi karke ghar mai aati hai, usko toilet nahi milta, bawal hota hai, ant mai pati usko toilet bana kar deta hai.”
He further reveals that because of this line the distributors have backed out from his film as they feel it is similar to ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha,’
After struggling for two years, his team was ready to release the film on July 28 this year. “But distributors have backed out saying our film is similar to ‘Toilet…’. They said even if they put it up, they would remove it from screens if asked to. This is unfair,” Sharma said.
We just hope that all these legal issues resolve fast and we get to see Toilet: Ek Prem Katha on 11th August.
