latest film in the direction of Raja Mouli has gone to floors today.
It also generated a never before plagiarism controversy. As per
the rumors circulated in tinsel town, the story of this film belongs
to a budding writer named G Srinivasa Rao (also called as GSR and
Engineer in the writer circles). That writer has been narrating
the story to lots of producers since one year. Dr. Rama Naidu okayed
the story, but could not start the project due to the set backs
he received due to 'Nee Premakai' and 'Hai'. Vakada Appa Rao (of
Supergood banner) also got impressed by the story and it was not
materialized due to some unknown reasons.
same story was narrated to the producer Trivikram Rao and at that
time noted writer Vijayendra Prasad, who happened to be there at
that spot, is said to have commended and complimented GSR for the
story. Later on Vijayendra Prasad narrated the same story to VMC
guys who were in desperate need of a good story for their stalled
project with NTR. VMC banner Okayed that story and started their
film in the direction of Raja Mouli, son of Vijayendra Prasad.
coming to know the glaring similarities in these two storylines,
CSR has complained it to AP Film Writers Union. There is a method
of registering stories at AP Film Writers Union. All one has to
do is to write the story on a plain paper and submit it to AP writers
union in a sealed cover. In case of any accusing of plagiarism,
the union members would open the sealed cover and compare the stories
and submission dates. And who ever submit the story first would
be the righteous owner.
is said to have registered his story a year back and Vijayendra
Prasad seems to have submitted his story very recently. Now it's
the time of AP Film writers union to open the sealed covers to compare
the stories. If the GSR's accusation were true, it would be a great
injustice to a budding film writer. We have to wait and what the
real truth in the days to come.
