    "I am a Thief, so what?" :Mahesh Bhatt

    "I am a Thief, so what?" :Mahesh Bhatt

    The panel discussion at FICCI Frames had an interesting debate titled Cut Copy Paste To Indian Taste which was attended by leading Bollywood names such as Dibakar Banerjee, Rohan Sippy, Imtiaz Ali, Kabir Khan and Mahesh Bhatt.

    The discussion focussed on the burning question 'do we have a dearth of creative talent in our country?' and naturally the prickly issue of plagiarism reared its ugly head more than once.

    "The topic is itself not an original idea and by the end of it we will get into a wrestling match," said filmmaker Imtiaz Ali.

    While it didn't quite turn into a wrestling match, it did come close. Seasoned writer-director Mahesh Bhatt picked the occasion to make a daring if obvious confession.

    "I'm a thief, every word or phrase that I use has been lifted or sourced from some other place. I want to make a living what is your problem," Bhatt said.

    Naturally, that comment couldn't go without a retort from a young gun.

    "How long can you get away with stealing? Now the foreign studios are here, they will sue you from here to eternity," filmmaker Kabir Khan said.

    Although, accurate in principle, Kabir Khan's point seems redundant in practice. David Dhawan, Sanjay Gupta, Sajid Khan and many others are still in business.

    So until we see some real change, sadly, cut, copy paste is how it remains even if it doesn't suit your taste!
