    Calling Sehmat Writer Harinder Sikka Accuses Meghna Gulzar Of Removing His Credit For 'Raazi'

    Ever since the news of Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic demise hit us, the nation has been shocked. But more importantly, a storm has been aged on social media. Issues like the insider v/s outsider treatment in Bollywood or nepotism have resurfaced again and debates on these have become regular. Amidst the uproar, now Calling Sehmat writer Harinder Sikka had levelled some serious allegations against Raazi director Meghna Gulzar.

    Raazi was adapted from Harinder Sikka's book, Calling Sehmat. Now, in an interview to a TV channel, the writer has accused Meghna Gulzar of removing his credit for the film. He said that he was not allowed to be a part of the Jaipur Literature Festival and the Filmfare Awards and even his book was stalled from releasing. He further added that he was to take the award for the Best Writer, but it went to Andhadhun despite the fact that it was a copy of a French book, because he was to be removed. The snippet has been going viral on Twitter too. Check it out here:

    Earlier too, Sikka had expressed his dissatisfaction with how the film rolled out. In an old interview, he had said, “I had promised Gulzar that I will take Meghna as director. I also asked for Alia Bhatt as the lead actor. I objected to the screenplay too. I wasn’t invited to the pre-release screening of the film. I learnt about the event after the film’s release. I received a message from Alia asking how did I like the film? She is a sweet girl and this film wouldn’t have been a hit without her. Sehmat went into depression much later but the makers ended the film there. It changed the fabric of the story. This leftist approach killed it.”
