  • Amitabh Bachchan Angry With Kumar Vishwas After Copyright Violation On Harivansh Poem

Amitabh Bachchan has sent a legal notice to AAP leader Kumar Vishwas for using a poem by the megastar’s late father, the poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan, in a video, and asked him to give an account of the revenue generated from it.

 

Bachchan said the video, in which Vishwas is seen singing the poem, was a “copyright infringement” and should be removed from the popular video-sharing site, YouTube, within 24 hours.

 

“Sending earned Rs 32 as demanded. Pranam??,” Vishwas tweeted in reply to Bachchan’s tweets on this. In a statement, the Aam Aadmi Party member said he had received the notice, which called for the removal of the video and asked him to account for the revenue generated through it. “The video will be removed,” Vishwas said.

 
 

The video — with Bachchan’s poem Need ka Nirmaan Phir Phir – is part of his programme ‘Tarpan’, in which the AAP- leader-cum-poet pays tribute to noted Hindi poets.

 
 

“This is a copyright infringement..! legal will take care of this,” Bachchan tweeted yesterday, posting the tribute video. To this Vishwas replied, “Rcvd appreciation frm all poet’s family but Notice frm you Sir. Deleting the tribute video to Babuji.

 

Sending earned Rs 32 as demanded. Pranam??” An associate of Vishwas said Rs 32 was the revenue generated from advertisements on YouTube. Vishwas added that he had received appreciation from the families of other poets whose works had figured in the tribute series.
