‘Dear Zindagi’ Makers To Be SUED?!
Gauri Shinde has denied reports of her ‘Dear Zindagi’ being a replica of the Canadian comedy-drama TV series ‘Being Erica’ before and still does, but according to an insider, “the producers of the series, Temple Street Productions have sent a legal notice to Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions for copyright infringement.”
Says a source, “Karan and the Dharma CEO, Apoorva Mehta were not aware that DZ was inspired in such detail from the Canadian show. Meanwhile, Gauri maintains her script is original, but the similarities are too glaring to go unnoticed.
Gauri Khan, who is also one of the producers, and the makers are now trying to figure how to sort it out amicably. This is the first time that Dharma, which has a clean reputation, has faced a plagiarism charge.”
When asked about the legal notice, Dharma CEO Apoorva Mehta said, “It’s not true… We haven’t received anything at all.”
