Vowing to take action against the makers and the platform, Rai reminded everyone that his film is an intellectual property of Asian Academy of Film & Television

Kajol moved 8.3 million YouTube viewers earlier this week with a 13minute short film Devi about rape victims. However, the awe was short lived, as an Indian director, Abhishek Rai, claimed the film copied his 2018 student film Four.

In a Facebook post, Rai claimed: “We at AndaKurry Productions, made a short film when we were in film school, 2 years back called 'FOUR' that dealt with a premise of rape victims sitting together in a room when a new victim arrives. And yesterday, a film named 'Devi' was uploaded to LargeShortFilms's YouTube channel that has heavy resemblance and the premise is also of the film we made.”

Admitting his film was made “with very little production design,” the director emphasized that “it's a child of our own imagination and it's ruthless how anyone can just pick up a piece of thought and claim it to be theirs.”

Vowing to take action against the makers and the platform, Rai reminded everyone that his film is an intellectual property of Asian Academy of Film & Television.

Devi is Written and directed by Priyanka Banerjee. It stars Neha Dhupia, Neena Kulkarni, Shruti Haasan, Mukta Barve, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Sandhya Mhatre, Rama Joshi and Rashaswini Dayam, alongside Kajol.
