It seems like Kangana and controversies go hand in hand. Her latest movie Jugdementall Hain Kya, co-starring Rajkummar Rao, had been in the news ever since it had been announced. And now, it has landed itself in a soup yet again. This time, it is over the movie’s poster. A Hungarian artist named Flora Bosti has leveled charges of plagiarising her work of art and called out to the makers of the movie. The photographer posted two of the movie’s posters, which have been copied from her work.
Check out the tweets here:
In the tweet, the artist is asking for an explanation from the makers of the movie, as she tagged Balaji Telefilms and the movie’s assistant art director Sheena Gola. Comparisons can be easily drawn as the poster where Kangana is holding a black cat right in front of her left eye is similar to Bosti’s artwork which she has shared with it. Even her twitter handle’s profile picture is the same work of art.

Check out the tweet below and judge for yourselves:

Gola on her Facebook post has claimed that no one had asked her for any permission to use her work or reached out to her. “It’s a shame for big companies plagiarising freelance artists work,” her post read.
