Kartik Aaryans Captain India lands into trouble 

Kartik Aaryan recently shared the first look of his upcoming film 'Captain India'. The film was said to be a thriller based on real events and Kartik is supposed to essay the role of a pilot. Makers of this film, Ronnie Screwvala and Harman Baweja are being accused of plagiarism by filmmaker Subhash Kale who claims that the concept of 'Captain India' has been stolen from his project 'Operation Yemen'. Both films are allegedly inspired by Operation Rahat in which Indian Armed Forces rescued several Indian and foreign civilians from Yemen during a crisis.

Subhash Kale says, "We have been working since 2016 on this project. The cousin of our director Sanjay Sankla was the pilot on this mission. Sanjay Sankla has been a reputed editor and has worked on nearly 95 films. He researched extensively and when he narrated the idea to me, I said that we should work on it as it’s an interesting subject. We took 9 months to pen the script. We even got Mission Mangal (2019) writer Nidhi Singh Dharma on board. Our pre-production was nearly done. I wonder where the idea got leaked from. This episode is in the public domain but we were the first ones to register at the Screenwriters Association (SWA).”

When asked about what he's going to do about the issue, Kale said, “Hansal ji is my friend. But maine unse iske baare mein baat nahi ki. Baat karke kya karenge? And anyway, hum unki film pe stay toh laayenge hi. IMPAA (Indian Motion Picture Producers' Association) has said that they’ll bring a stay on this film."
