The poster plagiarism game of Judgementall Hai Kya doesn’t seem to end anytime soon. Following a series of controversies, this Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer finally released, but the makers are still under scrutiny for their film posters. In the recent past, Hungarian photographer and visual artist, Flora Borsi accused makers for copying her artwork for the posters without her permission. The poster featuring Kangana and Rajkummar with a cat and mouse superimposed on their faces is similar to Flora’s artwork.
Now Flora has pulled out few more references from where the makers have copied two more posters. Flora sharing the copied poster, tweeted, “I just found out I'm not alone in this as an artist..made a little research. #JudgementallHaiKya” Now these poster were released long back when the movie title was Mental Hai Kya. While one poster has Rajkummar covering his eyes with a middle finger, the other has the actor’s face wrapped by a cello tape. According to Flora, these were picked from Pinterest from an unknown artist and designer Wes Naman. Check out Flora’s post below-
However, the makers remained unavailable for any comment. This Ekta Kapoor produced film is received well by the audience as well as the critics for the phenomenal work put in by the lead pair. On fourth day of its release, the movie now stands on the box-office figure of Rs. 24.64 crore.
Besides Judgementall Hai Kya, movies such as Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Ra.One, Anjaana Anjaani, Aitraaz, Murder 2, Phoonk 2, etc. were accused for copying posters in the past.
