KATHMANDU — Indian filmmaker Shirish Kunder’s short film ‘Kriti’ has been removed from YouTube after Nepal’s Aneel Neupane’s copyright claims.
The film in which popular Bollywood actors Manoj Bajpayee and Radhika Apte played lead role, pulled out from YouTube after Aneel claimed that the film’s plot was intrigued from his short film ‘BOB’.
YouTube removed the film on Tuesday stating, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Aneel Neupane.”
Aneel then shared a post with an image on the micro-blogging site Twitter that showed Shirish Kunder’s short film ‘Kriti’ is no longer available on YouTube. The Nepali director then thanked his followers for the immense support.

Last week, Aneel wrote a Facebook post which went viral. It stated that Kriti was copied from his own short film BOB, which was completed in October 2015 and had been online on Vimeo and YouTube since December 2015 and May 2016 respectively.
Aneel had clearly stated in his Facebook post how Indian filmmaker Kunder copied every bit from ‘BOB’. He urged people to spread the word and report the video for plagiarism.
‘Kriti’, an 18-minute short film, was released online on June 22.Follow @gorkhapost
