Novelist claims 'Magadheera' his brain child

Tuesday, February 2, 2010 • Telugu Comments

2009's blockbuster film Magadheera's producers may get into trouble. A novelist SP Chari is claiming that the film is based on a novel written by him in 2008, which he said was published as a serial under the title Chanderi in a monthly magazine, in 1998.

He demanded that he be paid compensation for using his idea without his consent. He also warned of taking to legal recourse if the producers did not heed to his demands and went ahead with remaking it in Hindi or any other language.

Chari said that he deserved to be credited for the story. He also alleged that Allu Sirish, son of producer Allu Aravind, was trying to postpone discussing the issue with him.

It looks like 175 days after the release of the film, which is all set to celebrate its success very soon, Magadheera will be mired in a controversy.
