SEE PIC: Anurag Kashyap proves that Rajkummar Rao's Newton wasn't plagiarised

While Secret Ballot aka Raye Makhfi holds IMDB rating of 6.7 on 10, with 1,104 votes, Newton posses an IMDB rating of 8.5 on 10 with 1014 votes, so far...

After being granted Rs 1 crore funding by the Government, actor Rajkummar Rao is planning to take time off to be in the USA for the very serious process of lobbying that preludes the Oscar nominations in the USA. wHILE Anurag Kashyap is lending his unconditional support to this critically acclaimed political satire ever since the news of it being India's official entry to the Oscars was out. Even as the director has denied claims, Kashyap has come in support of the film. And he wrote back 'A pretty decent film, definitely no rip off from our Secret Ballot (even if the general concept is the same )' and then I asked him if I can share his response on Social Media?

"With over-enthusiastic media and our cinephiles with over active imagination. who called Newton a copy of Secret Ballot. He replied, 'please feel free as you see fit, there is not even a hint of plagiarisation [sic]", Anurag posted on Facebook with a screenshot of the conversation. But this is how he thinks and looks at us (indirectly).

In an exclusive interview with indianexpress.com earlier, Newton director Amit Masurkar had said, "It would be best if people watch both films before deciding or writing an article".

"Thematic similarities are just that and I do not believe this would limit other filmmakers from rendering the same themes in their own voice. Newton is an award victor from Berlin Fest and I can promise you those curators watch more films in a year than rest of us do in a lifetime", wrote Kashyap.

Newton director Masurkar has already given his take on the controversy, saying: "The story was born from my heart". Muller has been associated with several prestigious film festivals and is also a part of Work In Progress (WIP) Lab of National Film Development Corporation's Film Bazaar in Goa.
