Agnyaathavaasi has been in news for an unwanted reason for last one week and so. Bollywood production company T series has filed plagiarism case on the makers with an allegation of lifting the story line from a French movie Largo Winch. T series have not just filed a case but also demanded a hefty amount of fine from the makers. Although it has been rumoured that T Series demanded 20cr, it’s 7.5 cr in reality. This whole incident caused serious damage to the reputation of Trivikram, who holds certain kind of goodwill as a writer.
Now here is another shocker. If reports coming from filmnagar are to be believed, even Saaho is inspired from the same Largo Winch. It is whispered that the makers of Saaho are bleeding sweat after witnessing the whole drama around Agnyaathavaasi. If this is true, what would Saaho makers do now after filming so much of script? Will they make changes to it or will they go with the flow talking a deal with T series?
Financial things aside, not so good news for the reputation of Tollywood which went sky high after a historical blockbuster like Baahubali 2.
