Mera Naseeb: Chitra accused Pakistani writer of plagiarism


Samira Fazal, award winning script-writer, is being criticized by Indian writers especially Chitra B. Divakaruni who accused Samira of having plagiarized the script of her Pakistani drama serial Mera Naseeb from Chitra’s book, ‘Sister of My Heart’.


Chitra tweeted about the alleged plagiarism, which was also pointed out by Indian TV producer Manish Goswami, who actually has the rights for making a serial on Chitra’s book, Times of India reported.

“I should have been the first to tell that story on Indian television. This is nothing short of copy right infringement,” infuriated Goswami.

Goswami also received a mail form Chitra’s manager stating, “As the current rights holder, would you approach the producer first to tell them to cease and desist? I will write in as well to support the fact that we have a license.”

Goswami intends to take legal action, if necessary.

“We have to fight this out. I have informed the broadcasters in question that they should pull the show off-air,” added Goswami.

Mera Naseeb was first aired on Hum TV on August 1, 2011. Writer Samira Fazal, ahs also won an award for the screen play. The drama serial is currently being aired on India’s Zindagi TV channel, which was launched a few months ago to give Indians the best Pakistani TV dramas on offer.
