You can find every Bollywood star under one roof and the place will be the Award shows. Celebs being awarded for their performance in the best of the movies they have done.

Recently, IIFA 2018 was held in Thailand where a tribute was given to the veteran actress Sridevi by paying a video of her work and a fan stated that it was plagiarised from a fan-made video by Saba Arif for her YouTube channel. The Youtuber wanted her acknowledgement for the video. The social media has gone crazy after knowing this.

If she has a problem with the video, she should reach out to me rather than just make such accusations.”

When Saba came to know about what Boney said, she said, “Sure, the clips are his to own. But I put my heart and soul into this video — it took me three days to make it. They didn’t change the sequences of the clips or the song(s), and the fact that I had put all that together makes the concept my intellectual property. This was never about the same clips being used, but about my hard work being taken for such a show without any acknowledgement. It is still my video, and I’d like to be acknowledged for the same. I’m just surprised by this reaction to my post”.

Well, Saba has all the right to get the acknowledgement for the video as she did the editing.
