Colors’ Bigg Boss season five’s contestant, Pooja Missra has reportedly sent Colors’ a legal notice. Missra claims that Colors’ Farah Ki Dawaat is a plagiarized version of ‘Pooja Missra Productions‘ cookery show. She alleges that the celebrity cook show was her idea and Colors’ stole it from her.
According to a leading daily, the legal notice reads, “All boundaries of professionalism and decency were crossed when Colors went ahead and plagiarized ‘Pooja Misrra Productions‘ maiden cookery show, written, directed, produced and anchored by my client herself by putting on air, Farah Khan Ki Dawat.”
It also says, “Even the sponsor Videocon had approached ‘Pooja Misrra Productions‘ for sponsorship for her cookery show, however, was shamelessly roped in by Colors for ‘Farah Khan Ki Dawat’. Now ever since the inception of Colors we have not seen a cookery show on the prime time slot, so its crystal clear that Farah Khan Ki Dawat was plagiarized from, ‘Pooja Misrra Productions‘ cookery show, which will soon be airing on a New York based food channel.”
The legal notice also talks about Missra’s stint on Bigg Boss. It reads, “My client states that after such a defamatory and horrendous projection on Bigg Boss, no one offered my client respectable roles in the Bollywood film fraternity and going by the bad example set by Colors to make my client a sacrificial lamb, everybody followed suit and did the same to her. That this lead to severe health, professional and financial losses for my client and scarred her career for life.”
