As the film Dil Bechara is ready to stream on one of the popular OTT platforms, we hear something interesting coming in it. Swanand Kirkire the known lyricist was seen tweeting for not getting the credit for the lyrics, while for Music, AR Rahman has the credit by the music streaming apps. Instead of having the credit category, there was song info that carried the name. Check the tweet as under:
इन म्यूज़िक apps पर तो लिरिक राइटर का नाम लिखने का रिवाज ही नहीं है . जो thumbnail producer ने दिया उसपर महीन menssion है पर अंदर जैसे हर गाने पर composer का नाम है , गीतकार का नहीं . लिरिक्स प्रिंट तो किए हैं नाम नहीं कर पाये @brahmatmajay @varungrover @FilmCompanion @Spotify pic.twitter.com/mQXzkq9dwH

Soon a detailed report from Film Companion came when such incidents have occurred before during the film releases. The writers’ names were also missing during the trailer release for the said film. Anupama Chopra is the founder and owner of Film Companion who asked about the same on her Twitter handle. She asked why the streaming giants not acknowledging writers?”
To this, Chetan Bhagat was quick to mock this tweet asking her to ask her hubby. Check his tweet as under.
Ask your husband. https://t.co/SHWNVun6ks

As per Free Press Journal news, earlier, Chetan and Anupama had their war of words on Twitter when the writer alleged that her husband (Vidhu V Chopra) publicly bullied him and collected all the awards without giving the credit to the writers. Check this tweet as under:
Ma’am, when your husband publicly bullied me, shamelessly collected all the best story awards, tried denying me credit for my story and drove me close to suicide, and you just watched, where was your discourse? https://t.co/CeVDT2oq47

For those who do not know about this issue, Chetan has claimed that producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has not given the credit to him during the release of the film 3 Idiots. He claimed that 70 per cent of the film is based on his novel Five Point Someone. He was never acknowledged for it.
