Kollywood superstar Suriya and Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal are coming together with an upcoming action thriller drama Kaappaan, which is titled as Bandobast in Telugu. The movie was in the news headlines after a plagiarism case was filed against Kaappaan by director John Charles.
John Charles had claimed that director KV Anand’ directorial venture ‘Kaappaan’ starring Suriya is based on his story ‘Saravedi’.
John Charles accused Kaappaan/ Bandobast director KV Anand of plagiarism. He alleged in his petition that he had narrated the script of Saravedi to KV Anand in the month of January 2017 but he did not get any response from the director but when he watched the trailer, he found the similarities between the scripts.
John Charles had requested the court to order the plaintiffs to pay him copyright fees and to display his name as the film’s writer.
Now according to the latest update, the case was heard at the Madras High Court on 12th September and the plagiarism case has been dismissed, citing the lack of evidence. It’s a relief for Suriya and the makers of Kaappaan. Finally, the movie will hit the theaters on 20th September.
Apart from Suriya and Mohanlal, Kaappaan also has Arya, Sayyeshaa, Boman Irani and Poorna in crucial roles.
