KATHMANDU — In another turn to the undeniably sensational confrontation between Nepali film maker Aneel Neupane and Bollywood film maker Shirish Kunder, the former’s short film BOB has been removed by YouTube.
Earlier, Kunder’s short film Kriti — featuring Manoj Bajpayee, Radhika Apte, and Neha Sharma — had been pulled down over a copyright claim by Neupane. And, in a similar copyright claim — credited to Abhayanand Singh of the Singapore-based Indie Muviz Pte Ltd, which produced Kunder’s short — has been applied to BOB, resulting in its removal.
BOB director, Aneel, took to his twitter handle to reveal about the same. He tweeted, “Bob has been lifted off youtube for now. But you can still watch it here. Right, @ShirishKunder? #KritiStoleBOB”.

Over the past week, the two have been locked in horn over their respective short films. It started with a viral Facebook post written by Neupane, who claimed that Kunder had plagiarised much of Kriti from his film.
