Anushka Sharma recently launched her own clothing brand called Nush with an autumn/winter collection consisting of 160 pieces, which will be available in both online stores and retail outlets. Within a week of this launch, she has been accused of plagiarising designs from Chinese brands, reports Pune Mirror.

Several reports emerged claiming that her brand had directly lifted designs of products from Chinese e-commerce websites. Of these products in question are a parka, a tan coloured trench coat, a pair of striped monochrome pants, a pink bomber jacket, and a black bomber jacket with floral motifs.

These claims emerged days after promos of the event were shared on social media, where Sharma can be seen talking about how she spent hours on end sampling the designs for the collection. She also mentioned that the clothes are in tune with her own fashion style, and that she actively provided inputs in terms of what would and what would not work.

Responding to these claims, the actor's spokesperson said, "Several discrepancies have come to light over the last two days and we are in the process of getting to the bottom of this. We will not stop at taking the most stringent action required to resolve the situation and will share more details when we have complete clarity on the matter."
