MUMBAI, Sept. 26: Director Anurag Kashyap has come out in support of Rajkummar Rao starrer film 'Newton'. The film is India's official entry to Oscar, however, at home ground, it has been mired in allegations of plagiarism. Reportedly, the film's story is similar to the Iranian film 'Secret Ballot'.
After all the buzz, Anurag Kashyap shared a post on Facebook which aims at clearing the air. The post is a screenshot of the reply of the producer of the 'Secret Ballot', Marco Mueller.
The caption with post reads, "With over enthusiastic media and our cinephiles with over active imagination .. who called "Newton" a copy of "Secret Ballot" ..here is what the producer of "Secret Ballot " said to me after watching Newton. I requested the link of Newton from its director and send it to Marco Muller , the producer. And he wrote back "A pretty decent film, definitely no rip off from our Secret Ballot(even if the general concept is the same )" and then I asked him if I can share his response on Social Media ? He replied ,"please feel free as you see fit, there is not even a hint of plagiarisation" .. below is the screen shot."
Amid all of this 'Newton' has been attracting the audience to the theatres. Also, the movie has garnered a lot of appreciation from all quarters.TOI
