Ilayathalapathy's Kaththi with A.R.Murugadoss is undoubtedly one of the most year's most expected movie, But with Lyca problem already concerning the makers now a bigger headache has appeared in regard to Copyright Violation case which has been filed in High Court.
According a writer named Minjur Gopi, the Kaththi story belongs to him and he has filed a petition in High court in this regard. Here is his perspective
Few years ago, an MNC had acquired lands of few people in Gopi's town and paid them bare minimum prices, Gopi recorded these events and the incidents the people had to face in this regard and scripted a story called Mootha Kudi. Gopi then apparently narrated the story to Producer named Vishwas Sundar who wasn't impressed and hence decided not to take up the film. Gopi's friend Jegan then put Gopi in contact with A.R.Murugadoss.
A.R.M who heard the story was very impressed and asked Gopi to convert the story into a double hero subject and also agreed to produce the film with Gopi as Director and when Gopi started working on the detailed script, Murugadoss had called off the project due to reasons unknown.
Few months later, when Kaththi took off Gopi was shocked and has now filed a complaint urging action to taken against A.R.Murugadoss. The court has ordered both Gopi and ARM to submit their story to be read and analyzed if it's a direct copy or not.
A.R.Murugadoss's team have also sent a response stating Murugadoss has never met Gopi and there have been no such discussions as reported by Gopi. More news on the issue will follow soon.
