Recently, renowned photographer Dabboo Ratnani‘s shot of topless Kiara Advani was called out for plagiarism on social media. Netizens pointed out that the concept of Kiara’s picture was lifted from Marie Barsch. Now hitting back at all these plagiarism allegations, Dabboo said that he has not copied anyone, in fact, he has repeated his own concept.

Sharing a throwback picture of Tabu(from 2002), Dabboo took to Instagram and wrote, “Beautiful @tabutiful for #dabbooratnanicalendar 2002 #lovenature This timeless & mesmerising shot of Tabu was taken in the year 2001 and it featured in my calendar in the year 2002. There’s been a lil noise about @kiaraaliaadvani ‘s breathtaking 2020 calendar shot with leaf ! ”

He further added, “Guess if I can reuse my camera, I can definitely repeat my own concept! & if at all that doesn’t go well with trolls, then I admit to plagiarising MY OWN SELF  #loveandpeace @dabbooratnani @manishadratnani Huge Thanks to my friends who trust me! That’s all that matters(sic)”
