Is ‘October’ COPIED From A Marathi Movie?

Marathi film director Sarika Mane has accused filmmaker Soojit Sircar of copying the plot of his film ‘October’ from her Marathi film ‘Aarti- The Unknown Love Story’.

‘October’ starring Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu received a positive response at the box office. Fans, as well as the critics, loved the movie and the lead pair of the film. But it seems like the makers of Marathi movie ‘Aarti- The Unknown Love Story’ are upset with Soojit Sircar for copying their film’s story.

Sarika Mene, the director of ‘Aarti’ told Mid-Day, ” I want the audience to watch both films and be impartial in their opinion. When I watched October, the emotions and characters portrayed are similar. Only a few things don’t match.”

She further added, “How can a writer have imagined the exact events that had occurred in my brother’s private life? I want to know where he [Sircar] got his film’s idea from – sometimes he says it’s inspired from his life, sometimes he says a newspaper article.”

According to Mid-Day, the story of the Marathi film is based on the real-life story of Sarika’s brother Sunny Pawar and his girlfriend Aarti Makwana, who was paralyzed in a car accident. It is the reason why Aarti is deeply offended.

A source told Mid-Day, “The movie comes from a personal space for Shoojit whose mother was in a comatose state in 2004 and he had taken care of her.”

We, simply don’t know whom to believe. Let’s wait until we get further updates in the news.
