But Anurag is in no mood to entertain Ranjan’s claims "Mr Nishant Ranjan, you have accused the wrong guy... I don't allow free publicity at the expense of my reputation," tweeted Anurag.

Bombay Talkies: Anurag Kashyap denies plagiarism claims

A certain Nishant G Ranjan claims that Anurag Kashyap has copied his story; Kashyap denies the allegations vehemently

Even before it hitting the screens to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema, Bombay Talkies-the compilation of four different stories directed by a club of talented filmmakers of B-town comprising  Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Dibakar Banerjee and Anurag Kashyap– has found itself in a controversy.
Nishant G Ranjan, an aspiring film writer, has claimed that the segment of Kashyap’s movie is plagiarised. Ranjan says that the Kashyap’s story is very similar to the story he wrote in 2011 and has also taken the matter to Film Writers Association. “The basic premise of the story is same – the struggle and the last wish of a fan to meet his idol Amitabh Bachchan. I had given my story to Anurag Kashyap in 2011. He did not reply so I thought he did not like the idea,” alleged Ranjan.

But Anurag is in no mood to entertain Ranjan’s claims “Mr Nishant Ranjan, you have accused the wrong guy… I don’t allow free publicity at the expense of my reputation,” tweeted Anurag.

Bombay Talkies will release across India on May 3
