Pakistani director Nabeel Qureshi believes Bollywood has copied his movie ‘Load Wedding’. The trailer of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming movie Raksha Bandhan was released recently.

The film is based on the story of a middle-class family. Brother Akshay Kumar has the responsibility of marrying his four sisters for which he faces several difficulties. From collecting dowry to finding a suitable match for his sisters, Akshay Kumar faces hardships in this journey. On the other hand, Akshay Kumar has a love interest with whom his wedding gets delayed as he is expected to fulfill his responsibilities first.

The story plot is quite similar to Nabeel Qureshi’s Load Wedding in which Fahad Mustafa and Mehwish Hayat played the lead role. Mustafa also had the responsibility to find a suitable partner for his only sister. Hayat was love interest of Mustafa. Mustafa had to go through several difficulties before he was able to marry her.

A tweet read, “Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film seems to have ‘borrowed’ heavily from Nabeel Qureshi’s Load Wedding.” It further stated, “Imitation is flattery? Because this isn’t the first time they’ve copied Nabeel’s work.”

The filmmaker joined in on the discourse and responded, “Load Wedding Pro Max?” He then quipped, “Ya Load Wedding dikhana bhai – thora aur expensive main (Please present Load Wedding but in a more extravagant setting).”

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

A Twitter user said that Bollywood has once again copied Nabeel Qureshi and Fizza Meerza’s movie. “Last time it was Shahid Kapur’s Batti Gul Meter Chalu, now Raksha Bandhan!”Batti Gul Meter Chalu was inspired by Actor-in-Law, which starred Fahad and Mehwish in lead roles alongside late Indian actor, Om Puri.
