I had narrated this script to YASH ji in 1997 & year after in 1998 to Shah Rukh Khan - Mahesh Doijode
Scripts are generally registered with Film Writers Association, for the simple reason of security of the story and script writers. But sadly, the trend has changed recently with renowned actors, after listening to stories, change their attitude and then lift someone else's baby they work with their writing team and created the script of the original story which belonged to the earlier writer.
Here comes Writer | Producer Mahesh Doijode who thought of raising his voice against film Titled "Abhineta" which was his Baby and now he had started scouting locations for his film.
Writer | Producer Mahesh Doijode told in an exclusive conversation to Priyanka Raina, "I had narrated this script to YASH ji in 1997 on the sets of Dil To Paagal Hai, amd then year after in 1998 had narrated to Shah Rukh Khan which he liked . But that time story was just first draft. I registered ABHINETA in Film Writers Association in 1999 .
"In 2005 At Prestigious FICCI FRAMES, I had a brief narration with Yash ji again & by the time I had more variations in my script. Yash ji liked the idea & was ready top produce, Only thing I told since I am a Producer too so will CoProduce it. May be this they must not have wanted. But they should have told me for story Since ABHINETA was my Baby" , Mahesh Doijode Adds
I will share the final evidences by court , once get approval by them. They are matching story and till now its same story
As per industry sources, this is the second time that it has happened with a SRK film. Earlier too, there were reports about Ra One where the disgruntled story writer was ultimately made a member of the production house team.

Making you think again.. about what technology can do

The movie which stars Indraneil Sengupta, who is a well-known face in the Bengali movie industry and was also seen as the negative lead inKahaani, is all set to release in two languages - Hindi and Telegu. In the first look of the movie, we see in bold, the words 'ACCESS DENIED' which signifies the angle of hacking and technology. The poster does not reveal much about the plot and leaves the audience wanting for more.
The movie is all set to release on the 29th of April, and it surely seems promising.
Filmmaker and visionary of Whistling Woods International, Subhash Ghai recently attended the prominent FICCI Frames Media & Entertainment Industry Conclave. The legendary director was a speaker amongst many of the top personalities like Ashish Kulkarni, Mukesh Khanna, M.Srinivasan, Rajiv Chilaka, Nishit Takia and Nina Jajpuria who had gathered to discuss their opinions on the most crucial issue currently prevailing that India needs Kid's Content Act.
The owner of the most established filmmaking and media institute in Mumbai, Subhash Ghai commenced the discussion with his strong viewpoints that today's children lack the knowledge of their own Indian culture and values. Children are the future of our country and the journey from a boy to a man is influenced by many people around him like his parents, school teachers, friends and most impactful one - Cinema. A young toddler has the most broadest vision as it is ready to think beyond any limits. The content which prevail currently make a child go away from his own culture and allows him to grab values of other countries. Kid's today are aware about foreign superheroes like Batman, Superman, Spiderman etc but little do they know about our Indian heroes who were in Mahabharat or Ramayan. These days younger lots feel talking or believing in our own culture is like an uncool thing. Therefore an act is strongly required to condemn our today's generation from being under the influence of west and this act should jointly be in effort with our directors, writers,distributors and all those who are behind the camera. Need of good content and creative people have to be recognized and encouraged to make such kind of films which will educate our children. Recalling an incident, the director adds that once he had asked a MBA graduate student whether she was aware who was the father of lord Rama and the student didn't have any answer. The incident left a big thought in the director's mind that how the generation is lacking the knowledge of their own superheroes which are in large numbers in our vast history.
Concluding the discussion on a positive note, the director shared that Whistling Woods has already initiated their bit in educating the youth by introducing creative art (dance, drama, poetry) in 110 CBSE schools and the number is still on counting. He ended by supporting a strong statement made from his co-panelist Nishit Takia that after Make in India we strongly need one 'Make an Indian'
