“Yes, I have read what’s being said online. But Kiara has not gone topless in my black-and-white picture that has emerged of late. I tend to shoot in a particular way that leaves a lot to the imagination. I think too-much-sexy in your face gets vulgar. It is better to leave a certain intrigue,” said Ratnani.

Ratnani was slammed with allegations of plagiarism last year when photographer Marie Barsch took to Instagram to point out that Ratnani’s photo was similar to a shot clicked by him. The celebrity photographer had responded to the allegation by stating that the shot was inspired by an older photoshoot he has done in 1992.

He wrote in a post, “Beautiful Tabu Dabboo Ratnani Calendar 2002. This timeless and mesmerising shot of Tabu was taken in the year 2001 and it featured in my calendar in the year 2002. There’s been a little noise about Kiara Alia Advani’s breathtaking 2020 calendar shot with a leaf! Guess if I can reuse my camera, I can definitely repeat my own concept and if at all that doesn’t go well with trolls, then I admit to plagiarising MY OWN SELF. #loveandpeace. Huge Thanks to my friends who trust me 100! That’s all that matters.”

As for Kiara Advani, the actress was last seen in Shershaah. The film has emerged as the most-watched Indian film on Amazon Prime Video. The war drama, based on the life of Captain Vikram Batra, stars Sidharth Malhotra in the lead role.
