After much controversy, Abhishek Chaubey's Udta Punjab released earlier this year to a lot of critical acclaim and financial success.
However, it seems that the praise may have been misguided, because allegations have surfaced claiming that the script may have been plagiarised from British author Ben Elton's 2002 novel High Society.
It's not just the titles that seem to match. High Society is a dark comedy that revolves around multiple characters and a politician's quest to legalise drugs in Britain. Udta Punjab, meanwhile, revolves around the drug trade in Punjab and also deals with a slew of characters.
