According to Ganguly, Kiku apparently mouthed some dialogues which he claimes originally belongs to him. He has accused Kiku of plagiarism.
Now, reacting to the charges levelled by Ganguly, Kiku, while talking to a leading daily said, “We are a big team and brainstorm before every episode. Someone cracked this joke and we made it a part of the script. It is possible that the same idea came to our writers, or maybe they had heard it somewhere. It is not that we do not use popular SMS or Whatsapp jokes. We can’t keep track of who cracked what joke and when.”
