Recently, filmmaker Sarika Mahesh Mene has alleged that Shoojit Sircar’s October is a copy of her Marathi film, titled Aarti – The Unknown Love Story (2017).

Sarika told Hindustan Times, “Aarti… is based on a real incident that happened with my brother, Sunny Pawar, and [his late girlfriend] Aarti Makwana. October is way too similar to their story and my film. I’m not saying all this without watching October. Obviously, they’ve added a few cosmetic changes, but how are the events, approach etc so similar? They start off showing a hotel where the characters are interns; my film starts with a newspaper office where Sunny and Aarti are interns. Then Shiuli falls from a terrace asking about Dan; in my film, Aarti, while on a trip with friends, is shown lost in thoughts and her friends point out that she was thinking about Sunny when the accident happened. Much like Shiuli’s mother asks Dan to concentrate on his work, Aarti’s mother says the same to Sunny — here, even the dialogues are similar.”

She added, “I’ve approached SWA, IMPPA, and Marathi Kala Mandal, among others.”
