Jyoti Kapoor, co-writer of Daawat-E-Ishq, was miffed when she saw the First Look of the film called Phir Se and accused Kunal Kohli of plagiarism. In fact, Jyoti even filed a complaint with the FWA (Film Writer's Association) alleging that Kunal had copied the story she had written a year ago. And now, it seems that the Dispute Settlement Committee of the association has passed the judgment in favour of Jyoti.


Jyoti Kapoor, who is thrilled about it not only expressed her happiness but even claimed that justice has prevailed. From what we hear, it seems, that some aspects of Kunal's script bear a resemblance to Jyoti's, and considering that the two met a year ago, and Kunal had access to the latter's script, the committee decided that filmmaker Kohli's work was influenced by Jyoti's script. Apparently, Jyoti had registered the script with FWA and had presented it to Kohli in a meeting almost a year ago, but it seems things didn't work out then, later she had taken it to another production house.


When the controversy started, Kunal had mentioned that Jyoti was accusing him of plagiarism in a bid to gain monetary benefits but now, Jyoti clarified on the same stating that money is not her concern since her script has been bought by another production house.


Kunal Kohli who is upset with the decision of FWA, stated that the decision of the association which is based on three main points, doesn't exist in his script and that he has appealed against this. Adding further about Jyoti's demand for money, the filmmaker revealed that he has a letter from Jyoti's lawyer asking him for a monetary settlement to sort the matter.
