Mumbai: Akshay Kumar’s ‘Padman’ released yesterday, and while many have loved the film, it looks like the movie has already called for trouble.

Ripu Daman Jaiswal has charged the makers with a charge of plagiarism. He claims that he had written the script and sent it to Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, and somehow the script is exactly the same as ‘Padman’s.

 

Ripu tried to raise his voice in December last year, but nothing much could be said or done till the movie releases. But now that ‘Padman’ has hit the theatres, Ripu pointed out many similarities between his script and the movie’s script.

He asked for help with a good lawyer in December as he had written and registered the script, and still he claims that it was stolen for ‘Padman’. Here’s his post:

But in his latest tweet, he mentioned that Amitabh Bachchan has narrated the exact same dialogue as is in his script. Along with a photo of the script, he tweeted:

 

And then he finally decided that he couldn’t take it anymore and needed the interference of court as he felt 11 scenes have been copied from his script. Here’s the tweet before he registered an FIR:

 

The alleged writer has now filed an FIR, as he feels that the script has been lifted without having his due.

Directed by R. Balki, ‘Padman’ also stars Sonam Kapoor, Radhika Apte in pivotal roles and Amitabh Bachchan in a cameo appearance.
