Kajal Aggarwal accused of plagiarizing poem for Mother’s Day post, credits original author after fan pressure
On Mother’s Day, Kajal Aggarwal took to Instagram to share a poem titled “Dear Mom”. However, she received criticism from her followers as soon as they realized the poem was originally written by someone else. The poem “Dear Mum” was originally written by Sarah, who goes by the name Matrescent Muse on Instagram. It was shared in April. Sarah had shared Kajal Aggarwalon his Instagram Stories and asked his followers to let the actor know about the situation. In the stories, which she later deleted, Sarah wrote: ‘My dear mum’s poem passed off as an original work by @kajalaggarwalofficial. Even the caption is copied with a few words exchanged haha. If anyone has the time to comment on their post asking them to credit me, I would greatly appreciate it!! I hope for a misunderstanding…”
“If someone has the time to visit their page and tag me in the post that would be great (clasped hands emojis) for someone with that many followers, they’ll probably be ignored, but that’s pretty disappointing! The odd copy of my original caption with a few words swapped makes me think it’s not an honest mistake @kajalaggarwalofficial,” she continued.
Hours later, Kajal credited Sarah in her post and changed her caption as well. In the caption, Kajal called her mother “the most special person” and thanked her “for being Neil’s best nani.”
Acknowledging the change, Sarah thanked her fans for their support. She wrote: “Thanks for the support everyone! Thank you so much to everyone who supported me in seeking credit on this post! Hope it’s just a misunderstanding! I still submitted a copyright infringement report through Instagram, which should encourage her to be credited in case she doesn’t see the comments. Also hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. mothers!”
Kajal had also shared the first photo of her son Neil on the same day. Alongside the photo, she wrote a long message, part of which read, “I pray that you grow strong and gentle and have a heart for others. I pray that you will never let this world tarnish your bright and charming personality. I pray that you will be brave, kind, generous and patient. I already see so much of that in you, and it makes me so proud to call you mine! You are my sun, my moon and all my stars, child. Never forget it.
