First of all, it's not like 4 Lions cares and is going to cancel the show because of some Geets fans that lack immaturity. I'm a Geet fan too and I agree that there are some similar aspects between both shows but that's going to happen in all Hindi serials. Kitani Mohabbat Hai, which aired over a year before Geet, had the whole angry boss and sweet employee romance too. No one said Geet was copying them? And if 4 Lions made both Geet and IPKKND, then technically it's not really "copying." ITS NOT CONSIDERED CHEATING IF YOU'RE COPYING YOUR OWN HOMEWORK. If 4 Lions has created these similarities, so be it. I don't see them forcing all Geet fans to watch their new show. If you don't like it, don't watch it. Simple. As for me, I think IPKKND is a completely different story. And isnt that what shows are about? The story? Yes, its the main point that matters, not the setting, the cliche romantic scenes which are bound to reoccur, or the way the characters act or dress. Arnav Singh Raizada may have things in common with Maan Singh Khurana, but they are not the same person. Khushi and Geet are alike in many ways but they are not the same. People all across the world share similarities with other people but it doesn't mean they are the same. Bottom line, love or hate it...but if you hate it, don't share it in a forum dedicated to those who love it. I hope people can become a little mature and accept the fact that this show will be successful and keep on running because 4 Lions and the fans want it too, and it's not going to stop because of the haters. Sanaya and Barun have been fabulous and the show has not bored me for a second, a good suprise considering how boring 1st episodes are. 4 Lions will outdo themselves once again and I wish t
he show the best of luck!
I am a Geet fan, and an IPKKND fan as well, and have no qualms about one copying the theme or the scenes of the other...and cribbing about it is immaturity in my mind. However, one sentence of yours prompted me to speak up and correct you. Copying your own homework from one class to another is considered 'cheating'
. It is known as "Self Plagiarism"
, and being in the US where plagiarism is strictly dealt with, I know about its forms. I heard of a student who got suspended for Self Plagiarism. You cannot use your own work for different classes...thats going off the topic but just wanted to let you know as a friend. However, I luv both the shows and am fully hyped about the dargah scene tomorrow.
