It was actress Lisa Ray who had accused the makers of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho of plagiarism. She penned a note pointing out that the makers copied the work of contemporary artist Shilo Shiv Suleman for one of its posters. She wrote, 'We need to stand up and speak up. To hold up a mirror to these makers to make them understand THIS IS NOT RIGHT. It’s come to light that a big budget film production has ripped off one of Shilo’s original creations. This is NOT inspiration but blatant theft. In no world, is this acceptable. The production did not contact the creator, asking her permission or offer to collaborate or offering a credit. Nothing. This is not right.'
