Mumbai : After Rakhi Sawant accused Aamir Khan of stealing the concept of her show `Rakhi ka Insaaf’ for his `Satyamev Jayate’, it seems the floodgates of allegations of plagiarism have opened. Another actor and a musician have also accused Aamir of being unoriginal.
Veena Malik of `Bigg Boss’ and the nude photograph on a magazine cover fame, has accused Aamir of revealing it all in the first episode on female foeticide. “Revealing is my forte. Okai. Revealing should be fun. Okai. Revealing in the way that Aamir did is not okai. He made men uncomfortable. Okai. That is not okai,” she explained.
Music composer Gritam has claimed the music of the show is not original. “I have heard it before. Pucca. Some Iranian song. I had even planned to get inspired by it and use it in some film. Now they have used it. Yeh ethical nahi hai. I have copyright to get inspired by Iranian songs,” he complained.
Meanwhile, Bollywood has been fullsome in its praise of one of its best known actors. Speaking to Tenali Rama from Kolkata where he was watching an IPL match, Shahrukh Khan said, “Congratulations to Aamir. I saw the first episode. It seems he was inspired by DDLJ. It is important also. If there are no dulhaniya, who will dilwale take?”
Inspired by Aamir Khan, actors Uday Chopra, Harman Baweja and Tusshar Kapoor have also announced their plans to start talk shows on the small screen. However, devotees at the Vinayaka Mandir in Bandra have organised a havan to pray that their shows do not see the light of day.
And it would seem politicians are watching `Satyamev Jayate’ as well. Former Tamilnadu chief minister M Karunanidhi has contacted the actor and requested him to do a show on how Jayalalithaa is troubling his families. “Thambi, it will be high TRP show. We can simulcast on Kalaignar TV, Kalaignar Music, Sun TV, KTV, Sun News, Sun Music also. If Jaya blocks signals in Tamilnadu, we will protest against assault on freedom of press,” he is reported to have said.
