Rensil D’Silva ? He is ad filmmaker & screenwriter ( Rang De Basanti, Luck ) and is making his directorial debut with Saif Ali, Kareena Kapoor & Vivek Oberoi in the lead. The film is titled Kurbaan ( earlier titled Jehad) and is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.

new yorkHere is the dope. Rensil recently checked out Kabir Khan’s New York, the new film from Yashraj Films. And he was shocked to see that two scenes in New York are exactly the same as it is in his film Kurbaan. Now how is that possible ? He quickly called up Karan to inform him about it. Karan generally sends all his scripts to Aditya Chopra for his feedback. Well, the dots got connected soon.

Now, Rensil D’Silva doesnt know what to do. He can’t go back and re-shoot those two scenes. And if he keeps the same scenes, it will look like he copied it from New York. Which scenes ? Read on.

1) The scene where Nawajuddin is driving the car and Katrina Kaif is sitting next to him. The police guys stops the car and asks Nawajuddin to show his license. He doesn’t understand english and so reacts violently thinking that police guys are harassing him because he is a muslim.

2) The second scene is the one where John Abraham introduces Neil Nitin Mukesh to his group. He picks out the traitor in the group and tells him to run away. And then John turns to Neil and asks him to take aim at the guy.

First was Suchita Bhhatia and now its from Karan Johar. what is Aditya Chopra upto these days ?

Strangely, K Jo sold the distribution rights of his two forthcoming films Kurbaan & Wake Up Sid to UTV, instead of Yashraj films who have been distributing his films for long. And now this incident. Will K Jo trust Adi again ? The answer isn’t difficult to guess.

Suchita BhhatiaWho is this Suchita Bhhatia ? Whats her background ? That’s what Kabir Khan, the director of New York is wondering. And like him, if you are in the same boat we got the dope.

Suchita Bhhatia – Freelance writer. Have worked on Ad films with Dibakar Bannerjee. Done the making of Piyush Jha’s Sikandar & Bhavna Talwar’s Happy. Last job with Bhavna Dharam Talwar. Is from Delhi.

new yorkHer story – In 2006, she emailed Aditya Chopra introducing herself as a screenwriter. Chopra replied back and asked her to meet Arjun Sablok. She met Sablok & narrated him two story ideas. One was Osama – A Love Story. Two lead characters. Set in New York. They are in college. Fall in love. Gets married. 9/11 happens. The guy is muslim, is picked up and is sent to jail. Illegal detention. Torture. Harsh life. He comes out of jail and joins a terrorist group. Her script is registered with FWA ( Film Writers Association).

The basic premise of the story suspiciously sounds similar to New York’s main plot.

Yashraj Films version – Arjun Sablok says he doesn’t remember meeting her or hearing any story similar to New York. Kabir Khan has no clue because she never met him and doesn’t even claim so. Kabir Khan says she is doing it all for free publicty and claims that Aditya Chopra doesn’t reply to any stranger’s email.

Current status – Suchita has lodged a complaint with FWA ( Film Writers Association). Submitted email proofs and her story. Yashraj Films has decided to file a defamation case againt her. Is it to scare her or is it for true ? Not confirmed yet.
