Recently, Kiara Advani shot for Dabboo Ratnani’s calendar and her photograph went viral on the internet. Dabboo Ratnani is, arguably, the most famous celebrity photographer in India and he has good connections with almost every big star of the Hindi Film Industry.
Every year, he releases a calendar and all the big names of Bollywood–young and old–shoot for his calendar. This year, many stars shot with him but Kiara Advani grabbed the most number of eyeballs for his bold and beautiful shoot.
Kiara Advani decided to go topless for the shoot and the end result was smoking hot, to say the least. Kiara’s picture went viral on the internet, especially social media. In the picture, Kiara can be seen topless as she holds a huge leaf in her hands.
However, there is a new twist in the tale as a user pointed out that Dabboo Ratnani copied this idea from the nternational photographer Marie Barsch. The user then claimed that Dabboo Ratnani has plagiarised Kiara Advani’s photo for his calendar.

Besides the fact that there is not much genius required for taking a semi nude photo ,I wonder what do these people get by making a thief out of themselves!
