Santhanams maiden production venture Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya is running successfully at the silver screens. However, the issue of plagiarism has struck him once again as he has failed to credit K Bhagyaraj for his movie Indru Poi Naalai Vaa as promised earlier.
Owing to a broken promise this time it is the son of actor and director K. Bhagyaraj who is heading the case against Santhanam and crew. “Santhanam who had previously agreed on a compromise to credit K. Bhagyaraj by returning him a handsome share of the profits has faulted again. Even after repeated attempts to contact him there has been no response from his side ” claims Shanthanu Bhagyaraj
To make matters worse Santhanam who had stated his earlier in the pre release interviews, the films was based on K Bhagyarajs Indru Poi Nalai vaa script, has now turned the table around stating the film he was inspired by The Hangover.
In response Shanthanu Bhagyaraj wrote on his microbloggin site expressing his astonishment on the same, ”You people say that YOU have conceived the concept and story? Its a RIP off !! you’ve done it and better ACCEPT it! To all the press and media, no compensation has been paid for taking my dad’s Indru poi naalai Vaa script.. all rumours. Not gonna let it pass unnoticed. Case is going on.. but I just want the people to know what’s been happening because they’re spreading rumors that we have been compensated. The court case is going on now and we wonder how this issue is going to be resolved.”
Moreover the young lad also said that it was shameless for the crew to state that the movie was original after all they could have just mentioned it as a remake.
