Few weeks back, makers of ‘Magadheera’ dragged the producer of the upcoming Bollywood film ‘Raabta’ to the court. They sued them for plagiarism saying that the makers of ‘Raabta’ have copied the plot line of ‘Magadheera’.
Now there has been a new twist to the case. Author SP Chari has now has claimed that Magadheera made by Geeta Arts starring Ram Charan is a copy of his novel Chanderi.
The author further informed the portal stating, “The story in ‘Chanderi’ is about two lovers jumping into well and committing suicide 400 years ago in Orcha Kingdom of Madhya Pradesh. They reincarnate after 400 years to get married. The villain in ‘Chanderi’ is hero’s own brother but here in ‘Magadheera’ he was heroine’s cousin. Rest of the story is as it was in Chanderi.”
A complaint was also lodged against Geetha Arts in Film Chamber by Chary but the complaint went unattended so far.
The author is demanding credits for himself in the film from Allu Aravind, the head honcho of Geetha Arts for the same.
However, the production house refused to make any conversation with Chary, which has left the author fuming with anger, who has threatened to knock the court’s door to lodge a complaint under copyright infringement Act.
