Just a couple of days ago, renowned Bollywood filmmaker and television personality Karan Johar was in hot waters for ‘copying’ Pakistani crooner Abrar-ul-Haq’s iconic track ‘Nach Punjaban’ for his recent title ‘Jug Jug Jiyo’.
After things escalated on social media, K-Jo finally gave credit to Abrar for being the original owner of the track. However, Abrar-ul-Haq shared that he will be pursuing legal actions against the team.
Yet again, another Bollywood title has been accused by social media of ‘copying’ a Pakistani movie. Reportedly Akshay Kumar’s latest project titled ‘Raksha Bandhan’ is a copy of Fahad Mustafa and Mehwish Hayat’s ‘Load Wedding’.
Both movies are based on a common man’s struggle to gather ‘jahaiz‘ or dowery for their sister. In this case, Akshay is a brother of 4 ladies whereas Fahad had one sister who he looked after.
Social Media Reactions to Copy of Pakistani Movie Load Wedding
Filmaker, writer, and director Nabeel Qureshi himself took it to Twitter to share his two cents on the matter: ‘Load wedding Pro Max ??? Ya load wedding dikhana bhai – thora aur expensive main.’

Journalist Mahwish Ajaz pens down’ Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film seems to have ‘borrowed’ heavily from @nabeelqureshi’s #LoadWedding. Imitation is flattery? Because this isn’t the first time they’ve copied Nabeel’s work.’

Journalist Hasan Kazmi mocked them by writing’ Upcoming #Bollywood film #RakshaBandhan is also a rip off of Pakistani Film #Loadwedding. @akshaykumar and @bhumipednekar are both in it. Load Wedding was produced by @fizza999 and directed by @nabeelqureshi.

During this debate, someone pointed out that the Pakistani movie ‘Chupan Chupai’ is also a copy.
