AAP leader Dr. Kumar Vishwas is once again in the news after a controversial statement on The Kapil Sharma Show. This time he has angered the Superstar of the millennium Amitabh Bachchan by posting a video on his official YouTube page of Kumar Vishwas where he was reciting his father Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s poem Nirman. Big B was shocked and surprised to come across the video which was not to use the literary works.

 

Big B has sent a legal notice to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and poet Kumar Vishwas for copyright violation of his late father Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s poem ‘Nirman’. Bachchan’s lawyers said the video is infringing copyright. They said Kumar’s recitation is likely to mislead the public-at-large about its source.

However, Dr Kumar Vishwas said he received appreciation from all quarters for the video. Apologising for his act, he said it was a tribute to Harivansh Rai Bachchan and he is deleting the YouTube video now. He also said he is sending Rs 32, which he earned from the YouTube video, to Amitabh Bachchan.
