Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer JudgeMentall Hai Kya received a positive response from critics and audience. But, the film, post-release, came under fire when a European artist claimed that the posters were copied from her art.
Flora Borsi, a photographer and artist based in Hungary, shared posters of the film alongside her art on social media and pointed out the similarities between them. Flora Borsi has claimed that the filmmakers have used her work without permission. And one can’t deny that the posters and her art are very identical.
