As in the past, Vijay’s upcoming flick ‘Sarkar’ too has been caught in the middle of a controversy, with South Indian Film Writers Association saying that the story of ‘Sarkar’ and one Varun’s ‘Sengol’ are same.
Even as a case in this regard is set to be heard by the Madras high court on October 30, ‘Sarkar’ director A R Murugadoss has stated that the film’s script was not copied and false charges are being made.
This has created doubts over the film’s release for Deepavali as scheduled. However, sources close to its makers say the movie would sure hit the screens as per the original plan and express hope that the issues would be settled before that.
It is said ‘Sarkar’ will not be affected much because the treatment of Murugadoss is different from Sengol and according to the copyrights law, minimum seven scenes should be same in two stories to declare plagiarism.
Produced by Sun Pictures, the film has music by Oscar-Grammy winner A R Rahman. Keerthy Suresh, Varalakshmi Sarathkumar, Radha Ravi and Pazha Karuppaiah play key roles in this political thriller.
