The new poster of ' Simran' credits Kangana Ranaut as the 'additional story and dialogue writer' has upset Apurva Asrani.

The new poster of the film ' Simran' hasn't gone down too well with Apurva Asrani the writer of the film as the poster credits Kangana Ranaut as the ' additional story and dialogue writer'  whereas Apurva Asrani features in the credit list as ' story screenplay and dialogue writer' .

While the writer does not have an issue about Kangana being named as the 'additional dialogue writer' he is not happy that the actress is sharing the credits as a co-writer.  The film directed by Hansal Mehta had previously worked with Apurva in films like 'Shahid', ;City Lights' and 'Aligarh'.

On his facebook account Apurva has reportedly shared the poster saying he has worked as the ' Story , Screenplay and Dialogue writer' for the film .

Director Goldie Behl tweeted Apurva saying, ' Nice feel@ apurvaisrani have heard of additional dialogues but can't understand additional story' a story how can it be additional ?  To this Apurva has replied that Hansal Mehta is best to answer this question.

In his tweets he has said he is fighting for his credit to remain in the film and says he has kind of regretted signing a contract that only protects the producers and that he believed that the producer is his friend.

'Simran' is slated for its release on September 15th 2017.
