Bollywood filmmakers have time and again been inspired by Hollywood flicks and even best selling novels. But the recent spat between writer Chetan Bhagat and the team of 3 Idiots has led the makers of 'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?' to ensuring that no such controversy is created around their film.

Director Ashwni Dhir, whose 'Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge?' is inspired by satirist late Sharad Joshi's 'Tum Kab Jaaoge Atithi', will be mentioning the author's name in the opening credits itself.

He confirms, "While penning my film, I had read Sharadji's piece and had therefore, got a letter of consent from Sharadji's daughter since the titles are similar. The position of credit has not been specified in the letter of consent. Though our team is yet to decide on the position of the creditline, I have no problems crediting Sharadji in the beginning. I'm also producing a serial on Sharadji's works titled Lapataganj: Sharad Joshi Ki Kahaniyon Ka Pata. Here, I've included Sharadji's name in the title. Giving due credit to an author adds credibility to my project."

Well, we certainly appreciate this move by the team of 'Atithi….' and hope other filmmakers also follow suit!

    Good, filmakers are learning to appreciate Writer's work. I think writers should clearly specify in the contract that their conpensation will be based on the Gross Sale of the movie.
