Bunty, Babli aur woh

Another plagiarism controversy hits the fashion world, with Suneet Varma alleging that an outfit that he had designed for his Fall 2003 collection has been ripped off by the designer Aki Narula for the film, Bunty and Babli. Varma (not related to me) told Rediff:
I called Aki, because I think he has a right clarify his stand. He was vague. He said he did not know it was my design, and that he had picked it off a store called Options [in Mumbai], because there was a sudden requirement for a poncho the next morning. He said there was no label on it; that is not possible.

So who's the real culprit here? We will find out soon enough ... and then we will forget.
