Creativity

Fake could be a synonym for Bollywood if oxford decides to renew its word list.Imagine on one hand they keep shouting, no piracy! no piracy! BS and then they arm twist a writer and not give him credit for a work they definitely copied (I agree the climax wasn't the same). But this time unfortunately for them, the writer is kind of popular, writes a blog and has good credibility. On one hand, no piracy, on the other, yes to copying without giving proper credit. It seems Bollywood and original can never go hand in hand. I don't know how much creativity really exists. As Einstein says, creativity is the art of hiding your sources, well if you can't hide as in this case, please give due credit. It is a cheap act when you are earning crores, not big hearted enough to give proper credit and then misbehave in press-conferences.
