Actress Kiara Advani has recently made her debut in ace photographer Dabboo Ratnani’s calendar 2020. But the Kabir Singh actress’ photograph did not go down well with a section of social media users. However, the celebrity photographer has an answer to it all!
Kiara’s picture from the calendar shows her standing topless behind a large leaf. Many social media users called it a copy of international photographer Marie Barsch’s similar photoshoot.
“Dabboo is a copy cat. He copied the photography concept of Marie Barsch,” a user commented.
Another one wrote: “Dabboo Ratnani is a plagiarist.”
However, the celebrity photographer is now shutting the haters with a photoshoot of veteran actress Tabu, from whom he took inspiration for the latest click.
Daboo Ratnani took to his Instagram to share the picture and wrote, “Beautiful @tabutiful for #dabbooratnanicalendar 2002 ❤️📸🗓 #lovenature This timeless & mesmerising shot of Tabu was taken in the year 2001 and it featured in my calendar in the year 2002. There’s been a lil noise about @kiaraaliaadvani ‘s breathtaking 2020 calendar shot with leaf ☘️ ! Guess if I can reuse my camera, I can definitely repeat my own concept 🤓🤪✌🏼 ! & if at all that doesn’t go well with trolls, then I admit to plagiarising MY OWN SELF 😅😂🤣🤪 #loveandpeace @dabbooratnani @manishadratnani Huge Thanks to my friends who trust me 💯 ! That’s all that matters ”

Meanwhile, the International photographer also shared a screenshot of one such collage and took to Instagram handle to express her disappointment over the alleged plagiarised content.
“I just leave that here,” Barsch wrote.
