Soon after the release of the movie on YouTube, the movie ran into controversy after a young filmmaker from Nepal, Aneel Neupane claimed the movie was a copy of his short film Bob released on Vimeo on October 2015 privately among friend and family circle. The incident developed into an ugly affair of claims and counterclaims with both the films being removed from YouTube. Kriti is now back on YouTube about three weeks after it was pulled down for violating said claim and Bob is back as well on YouTube. Another short named DAZED also got into fight which had the similar storyline and was released on March 13, 2015 even before the both movies.
