We know about people not getting their due credit for the work they put in and it sucks. But, what about getting credit without even working on something? No, we're not here to talk about your boss and their credit-stealing ways.
In a hilarious and 'shocking' mix-up, Javed Akhtar has been given credits for being a lyricist for the upcoming biopic 'PM Narendra Modi' based on the Prime Minister's life starring Vivek Oberoi. The only problem is that Javed Akhtar never even worked on the movie!
Sharing his shock on Twitter, he wrote about not having been involved in the movie whatsoever.
Am shocked to find my name on the poster of this film. Have not written any songs for it ! pic.twitter.com/tIeg2vMpVG— Javed Akhtar (@Javedakhtarjadu) March 22, 2019
Has this ever happened? Like, I remember controversies with people not getting credit, but this has to be a first. Did someone copy-paste the names from somewhere and Javed Akhtar also accidentally ended up there? I need some answers, and so does Javed Akhtar, it seems.
Since the movie is a hot topic for today, this new development also got some reactions online. Here's what people are saying:
