Interestingly the film that missed being India's Oscar entry by a hair's breadth is the Aamir Khan blockbusterDangal.And if Newton misses the bus, Dangal goes. Some people also accused the film being plagiarised from Iranian film, Secret Ballot. If it was a copy, do you think Berlin, Tribeca would have programmed it? All these allegations have begun when it landed in India. "I don't even know about the film or the story of Secret Ballot".
Anurag took this opportunity to slam the critics of Newton as he captioned his second post: "And this was Babak's answer to an indian journalist who wanted to know what Babak felt ( without having seen the film) I don't know yet if this interview is out". He posted a text on the micro-blogging site to mock at the comparisons.
Gangs of Wasseypur director wrote on Twitter, "Newton is as much a copy of Secret Ballot as The Avengers is of Watan Ke Rakhwale".
"Standing up for its genuinity, Kashyap posted: "'Newton' is an award victor from Berlin fest and I can promise you those curators watch more films in a year than rest of us do in a lifetime".
The producer of Secret Ballot says Newton is not plagiarised from his movie.

Joseph Fuentes of the New Jersey State Police is believed to be the front-runner for the position. Rosenberg has also been at loggerheads with Justice Department leaders over marijuana research.
"With over enthusiastic media and our cinephiles with over active imagination. who called "Newton" a copy of "Secret Ballot".here is what the producer of "Secret Ballot" said to me after watching Newton".
As per the director, upon his request, Muller watched the film and accepted that apart from the general idea, nothing in the two films is similar. His response, as per the screenshot, reads, "please feel free as you see fit, there is not even a hint of plagiarisation". below is the screen shot.
Amit Masurkar, the director of the film, further cleared the air by releasing a statement regarding this issue, stating, "I remember after I wrote the script just before I was going to shoot, a friend told me about Secret Ballot".
Payami has said in his response that "thematic similarities are just that" and he hopes they will not stop others from "rendering the same themes in their own voice". "I am therefore not contemplating anything but my best wishes for director Amit Masurkar". With Rajkummar Rao's Newton being accused of plagiarism, Anurag made a decision to take things into his hands, and all he had to do was send out a wise tweet.
