At a time when debates revolving around nepotism in Bollywood have been doing rounds, filmmaker Meghna Gulzar has been mired in a new controversy. Harinder Sikka, the writer of Raazi has now made some serious accusations on her in a recent interview with a news channel. He has accused the filmmaker of getting his name removed from everything at the Jaipur literature festival. Not only that but the writer also added that his book was not allowed to be launched by Meghna.

Sikka also claims that he has got evidence while quoting a few words by the head of Jaipur Literature Festival who reveals that he has been ‘bulldozed’ into removing a person. The writer then says that his book was also delayed as every credit should have gone to Meghna Gulzar. While talking about a prestigious award, he says that it was supposed to be given to him for the best ‘original story.’


However, this award was later given to Andhadhun which, according to him, was a copy of a French book. Harinder Sikka then cites the example of Chhapaak stating that Meghna also took away the credits of the lawyer from Delhi. He then adds that there is a history of mafia operating in Bollywood. Citing the reason behind whatever has been done with him, the writer says that all of this is because he happens to be an outsider. Sikka alleges that his movie Nanak Shah Fakir was supposed to go to the Oscars but this was not allowed.  

I saw part of his interview with arnab. He had an email from the jaipur lit fest director that he was being bulldozed by meghna to remove harinder from the fest so basically only meghna gets all the credit

I think yahan bollywood mein sabhi ghatiya hain. Some just manage to hide it better. The level of entitlement they feel is unbelievable.

Eh, I am very confused. Sikka wrote the book in late 2000s, right? What exactly did Meghna do.

And if Andhadhun gets discredited for being an adaptation of a French short film, shouldn't Raazi also be discredited for being an adapted screenplay?

^^ basically she promised that she won't tamper with the story and then she did. 

SPOILER - like the ending, the real sehmat was happy to back in India and saluted the Indian flag when she xame back. Here she showed her as a depressed woman (his words). The distinction might not be much but he wanted to show that Kashmiris are also patriotic above personal emotions 

Further, she completely cut him off post acquiring the rights. She didn't show him the film, had him removed from the literature festivals and other events so that raazi would just be her film. And she stopped publication of his books

... It might seem like little thing... One can say that she named him in credits but basically she removed him from public perception and hijaked his story as his own
