TVF’s Aspirants Is 30% Plagiarized From Hindi Novel Dark Horse
Arunabh Kumar’s character has been questioned again and this time it is for plagiarism. Arunabh Kumar is a big name as he founded the TVF Media Labs and came up with a plethora of unique Indian shows one after another. TVF’s latest show Aspirants is getting everyone’s attention for all good reasons but a famed writer Nilotpal Mrinal.
Nilotpal Mrinal shared a picture of him with Arunabh Kumar from a function that works as proof that Arunabh Kumar is well aware of the works of the writer and his famous book Dark Horse about the preparations of UPSC aspirants. Later, Nilotpal pointed that almost 30 percent of his book has been used to create the super hit web series Aspirant.
Nilotpal Mrinal has shared two Facebook posts accusing the Aspirant show creators of Plagiarism and his posts got a lot of attention on social media. Nilotpal has written, “These rich and influential people thought that writers like Nilotpal come and go every day. Recently, even Satya Vyas Banaras Talkies was plagiarised…. what could anyone do to stop or punish the perpetrators?”
“But”, he says, “That will not be the case with Dark Horse. I will fight for my rights, and if I win or lose, it will be a wake-up call and inspiration for all writers whose work is stolen.”
