For the unversed, calling out the poster of ‘His Story’ for plagiarism, Sudhanshu Saria tweeted, “WHY IS THIS INDUSTRY LIKE THIS? Woke up to find that our painstakingly illustrated, original poster for @loevfilm has just been blatantly ripped off by the geniuses at @altbalaji @ZEE5Premium for their show #HisStoryy // Thread” He continued in a threaded tweet, “Thirteen months of back and forth and so many drafts by the amazing minds at @TalkPigeonCo with oversight by @jahanbakshi and amazingly illustrated by artist @rohanpore just ripped off without any decency.” Sudhanshu made the tweet, sharing the poster of LOEV alongside it. He also shared a screenshot of the poster shared on the ALT Balaji Instagram handle.
Meanwhile, talking about the web series ‘His Story’, the story revolves around a happily married man who has an extra-marital affair.
