Notorious Instagram account Diet Sabya this time targets the makers of Bhram, an upcoming web series on the digital platform Zee 5. Starring Kalki Koechlin, Sanjay Suri and Bhoomika Chawla in pivotal roles, makers unveiled a spooky trailer today morning. While the trailer was trending for its spookiness and mysterious plot, Diet Sabya took a potshot at its poster. Poster featuring Kalki Koechlin has a bird covering half of her face mostly a crow is copied! And Diet Sabya has the proof.
Sharing Kalki’s poster along with The Nightingale, Australian period thriller poster, the Instagram account took a funny dig at this copy affair. The Instagram handle captioned this image as, “We You Spot A चील, But Think It’s A कौआ.” LOL! The post received a lot of support, making fun of the makers and their inefficiency to hire an expert providing creative solutions. Both the posters are exactly the same with dark theme background and close up of the central characters, with a puzzled expression on their face. After receiving a lot of flak, Zee5 ended up removing the post.
In the recent past, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and makers of action thriller Saaho were targeted by the account for the copycat act. While Aishwarya Rai was trolled for copying Kate Winslet’s ladder pose in her recent magazine cover. Makers of Saaho were trolled for copying artist Shilo Shiv Suleman’s artwork for the song poster of Baby Won’t You Tell Me.
Seems like copying is a new gimmick to grab eyeball in the industry, ultimately resulting in the publicity for the upcoming project.
