Once under the banner of Shah Rukh Khan, the king of Hindi cinema, Red Chillies Entertainment, OTT platform Netflix’s webseries ‘Betal’ has been mired in a controversy with its release coming so close. Screenwriters of Marathi films Sameer Wadekar and Mahesh Gosavi filed a petition in the Mumbai High Court against Shahrukh’s webseries, saying that the story of ‘Betal’ has been stolen from one of their stories ‘Vetal’. The matter has also reached the Screen Writers Association. Netflix has not yet responded to this.
