Just a few days ago, we woke up to the news of the Marathi film Nude, along with Malayalam S Durga, being dropped from the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) to be held in Goa, followed by the news of Sujoy Ghosh, jury head, stepping down from his position in protest. But now, looks like Nude has found itself in fresh mud after Manisha Kulshreshtha, a writer, accused director Ravi Jadhav of plagiarising her story Kalindi, without crediting her duly.

Nude is the story of a woman who poses as a nude model for artists in Mumbai, and her struggle to keep her profession a secret from everyone, including her family and her son. Manisha claims the premise of this story is exactly similar to Kalindi. "I will have to take legal action against it. Such situation arises because they do not want to give credit or money to writers,” Manisha told ANI

What's more? Manisha alleges that she tried getting in touch with Ravi on Facebook, expressing her concerns about the ghastly similarities between the two stories, but Ravi allegedly blocked her from Messenger, not before she captured some screenshots of the message, though. At the moment, Ravi hasn't issued any statement addressing these allegations.
