Suriya one of the topmost South Indian stars apart from his busy acting career is also a highly successful producer. Along with his wife Jyothika he runs 2D Entertainment which produces not only big budget films starring the couple and Karthi but also other actors in lead roles.

Suriya recently produced the critically acclaimed film 'Raame Aandalum Ravanae Aandalum' starring Ramya Pandian and Vani Bhojan in the lead roles. The film is streaming on Amazon Prime Video and is well received by OTT audiences. However controversy arose as it has been found that writer-director Arisil Murthy has copied the story and screenplay of the Marathi movie 'Rangaa Patangaa' released in 2015.

It is said that Arisil Murthy made slight changes to 'Rangaa Patangaa', changed the gender of the journalist to female from male and made 'Raamae Aandalum Raavanae Aandalum'. When Suriya got to know the truth he reportedly got furious and called and warned the filmmaker.

Not stopping with that the sources said that Suriya got in touch with the 'Rangaa Patangaa' director Prasad Namjoshi and the producers and compensated them with the appropriate amount for the rights. The sources add that in the history of Tamil cinema Suriya has set an example of doing the right thing for the original creators even though they were not aware of the theft of their creative product.
