Twitterati calls out makers of Sidharth Shukla-Shehnaaz Gill's 'Shona Shona' for plagiarism, accuses them of copying IZ*ONE Beware and B1A4's Like A Movie videos


Sidharth Shukla's and Shehnaaz Gill's music video titled Shona Shona released on social media yesterday and gave a delightful surprise to fans. The video broke all records and is trending at number 1 position. While SidNaaz fans can't enough of their chemistry and the beauty of Shona Shona, a Twitter user has accused the makers of plagiarism. According to the user, Shona Shona's directors Agam Mann and Azeem Mann have copied multiple scenes from a Japanese group named IZ*ONE's music video titled Beware and B1A4's Like A Movie. Beware released on Oct 6, 2020, while B1A4's Like A Movie released on Oct 19, 2020. 

The Twitter user, in a series of tweets, brought the similarities out in the public. After sharing several pictures from the three music videos, the user wrote, "i looked into legal laws about this, and i’m not sure if legal action can be taken. however, still profiting off a clearly stolen idea and not giving credit is not smth to be praised. the lack of creativity is astounding."

Taking the matter ahead, a letter was drafted by social media users that read, "It has come to our attention that Indian Directors in the names of ‘Agam Mann’ & ‘Azeem Mann’ has plagiarized IZ*ONE Beware MV in their recently released music video titled “Shona Shona”. They plagiarized beware MV and are claiming credits for it. Please look into this and take action as soon as possible."

The makers of Shona Shona are yet to issue a statement regarding this.
