This TV Show Is Under Fire For Ripping Off Its Trailer From An Indian YouTube Video

The trailer for Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant has a premise similar to a 2015 YouTube Comedy Hunt sketch.

In September 2015, YouTube channel Random Chikibum released a sketch titled "Marriage Counseling" as part of the YouTube Comedy Hunt.

The sketch involved a man complaining about his wife to his therapist, even though she matches the typical stereotypes of an ideal woman, much to the therapist's frustration.

A couple of weeks ago, Life OK released the trailer for their new show Bahu Hamari Rajni_Kant, which seems to have the exact same premise as the Random Chikibum sketch.

Random Chikibum posted the two videos on their social media pages alleging plagiarism by Life OK.

A lot of people have noticed the similarities, including many Indian stand up comedians who have been rallying for action to be taken against the show.

@awryaditi @LifeOKTV @randomchikibum @YouTubeIndia Hope they're being taken to court over this. Needs to happen.
