Kangana Ranaut- Rajukummar Rao starrer Judgementall Hai Kya hit the theatres this Friday on 26 July and has been making good numbers at the box office within a few days of its release. The movie, since the very beginning, had been embroiled in controversies right from the title being changed from Mental Hai Kya to Judgementall Hai Kya. Now the filmmakers have found themselves in another controversy over its new poster and a Hungarian artist has alleged the makers of plagiarism.
Flora Borsi, a renowned Hungarian photographer and visual artist accused the makers of the film Judgemental Hai Kya, Balaji Motion Pictures-run by Ekta Kapoor, of copying her work without her permission in the recent poster of the film. The digital poster in question was unveiled a few days back and features lead actors Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao with a cat and mouse juxtaposed on their respective faces. Flora Borsi took to Facebook to share a collage of her original art work alongside the Judgementall Hai Kya poster in question. The two photos had a striking similarity which cannot be denied! She wrote, “Any similarities? It’s a famous bollywood movie poster called “Judgementall Hai Kya”. They didn’t ask for any permission nor reached me out. It’s a shame for big companies plagarising freelance artists work..”
The artist also retweeted one of Rajkummar Rao's tweet and wrote, ‘Oh yeah, this image somehow reminds me of.. oh wait. looks like totally my work!’

A lot of people on Facebook showed support to the artist and slammed the makers of Judgementall Hai Kya for this very obvious case of plagiarism. However, the makers of the film have not yet reacted to these allegations.
