Bollywood director Shirish Kunder’s Kriti Short Movie is removed from YouTube from copyright claim by Aneel Neupane. The aspiring young director Aneel Neupane took it to Twitter to share the news yesterday. With Kriti removed, the Bob movie is gaining more and more views lately.

Bob, despite being released on May 12, 2016 had gathered mere 100,000 views. On contrary, Kriti was able to acquire more than 2.5 million views just in a week or so.
Earlier, Shirish Kunder had denied all the allegations put forward by Aneel Neupane and instead had filed legal notice for false defamation.
As we have already discussed, these two short movies, Bob and Kriti have astonishing similarities which obviously can’t be mere coincidence. As the argument put forward by Aneel, the Bob movie was produced few months ago and released on YouTube recently.
On other turns of events, it appears that Kriti Movie stole the idea for movie poster from some Japanese movie as well. You can view the poster below which again can’t be just coincidence or inspired.
It would be interesting now to see how Shirish Kunder responds to this after YouTube removed the video from the site. Stay tuned for updates.
