Nabeel Qureshi reacts to Bollywood ‘copying’ his films




It is undeniable that Bollywood has often taken inspiration from Pakistan when it comes to shamelessly copying our music. Be it Munni Badnaam to the infamous Dil Dil Hindustan; we have lost count of how many times the Indian film industry has felt “inspired” by artists from this side of the border.

However, this time it is Akshay Kumar’s latest offering, Raksha Bandhan, which caught our attention. The film features Bhumi Pednekar as Akshay’s childhood sweetheart. The trailer further reveals that the two want to get married, but unfortunately their wedding is constantly being pushed back as Akshay’s four sisters are still unmarried. Directed by Anand L Rai and set against the backdrop of a small town, Raksha Bandhan tackles the brotherly bond but with a pinch of comedy.

The storyline seemed eerily similar to Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza’s 2018 offering, Charge Marriage and was highlighted by social media users.

A tweet read: “Akshay Kumar’s next film seems to have ‘borrowed’ heavily from Nabeel Qureshi’s Charge Marriage.” He further stated, “Imitation is flattery? Because it’s not the first time they’ve copied Nabeel’s work.”

The filmmaker joined in the speech and replied: “Charge Marriage Pro Max?” He then joked, “Ya Load Wedding dikhana bhai – thora aur dear principal (Please present Load Wedding but in a more extravagant setting).”

Another pointed out, “Our very own Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Ali Meerza are copied in Bollywood again! Akshay Kumar replaces Fahad Mustafa and Faiza Hassan’s Baby Baji is split into four sisters while Bhumi Pednekar is Mehwish Hayat.”

Adding, the tweep shared, “Last time was Shahid Kapur Batti Gul Meter Chalunow Raksha Bandhan!” Batti Gul Meter Chalu was presented as “inspired” by Nabeel and Fizza’s 2018 offer, actor in law which featured Fahad and Mehwish in lead roles alongside late Indian actor Om Puri. “You mean, Charge Marriage reloaded!” the director tweeted.

Nabeel’s 2018 social drama was a mix of dynamic atmosphere, unforgettable love story, a delightful fusion of commendable slapstick, relatable social issues, sharp dialogue and loaded performances. One could easily conclude that Load Wedding is a fresh comedy-drama with a captivating storyline and enchanting music, all set against a backdrop of vibrant Punjab.

The film revolved around the premise of a simple young man, Raja, who wants to marry his childhood crush, Meeru. However, a red card is shown by Raja’s mother, played by Samina Ahmed, to mean that he cannot get married until his sister Baby Baji gets married. Baby Baji is overweight and due to Raja’s sluggish economic conditions, his family cannot afford a lot of dowries. His mother, however, is outraged at the idea that he would want to marry before his sister.

Additionally, the film also decoded how single, obese women struggle to get proposals, how they tackle fat shaming, and their constant struggle to lose weight. It looks like the film addresses some of the sensitive social stigmas attached to arranged marriages, divorce, dowry, and obesity in a conventional society.

Both Charge Marriage and Raksha Bandhan are touted to tackle societal issues around dowry, marriages and fat-shaming. Another thing we really couldn’t ignore was the mustache! Akshay seems to fit the worried bro requirement – just like Fahad – with a clean look and a trimmed mustache!

On the work front, Nabeel is currently planning his next venture, Quaid-e-Azam Zindabad. The Mahira Khan and Fahad star is set for an Eid release next month and revolves around the topic of corruption.
