Back in 2010, Pankh, featuring Bipasha Basu, Lilette Dubey, Mahesh Manjrekar, Ronit Roy, Sanjeeda Sheikh and newcomers Maradona Rebello and Amit Purohit, hit theatre screens across India. The film sunk without a trace, however, the writer- director Sudipto Chattopadhyay made several rounds of various film festivals with the film. Now, three years later, we hear that Sudipto is planning to take legal action against Zoya Akhtar for apparently lifting his film for her story in Bombay Talkies.

Apparently, after watching the trailer of Zoya's feature and learning about the storyline, Sudipto felt that Zoya has lifted the central idea of his film, for her upcoming Bombay Talkies. Further reiterating he says that Zoya's film is exactly what was shown in his, with almost every bit of the story line being similar. If that wasn't enough, Sudipto further claims that certain scenes have been blatantly lifted from his film without giving him credit. »
