A poster of Sangeeth Sivan's web show, Bhram, starring Kalki Koechlin, bears an uncanny similarity to a poster of the Australian thriller, The Nightingale (2018). It features the face of actor Aisling Franciosi, as a blackbird flies past, partially covering her face.

The Bhram poster with Kalki's face also has a blackbird taking flight and covering her visage. The eight-episode Zee5 thriller is set in Shimla. While referring to the likeness, Instagram handle @dietsabya wrote, "We spot a cheel (eagle) but think it is a kauwa (crow) (sic)."
