Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon starrer ‘Raabta,’ directed by Dinesh Vijan, is in trouble before its release. When the first trailer of Raabta was released, the people reminded SS Rajamouli’s directorial venture ‘Magadheera ’ starring Ram Charan and Kajal Agarwal which was released in 2009.
The concept of two estranged lovers meeting in different life is something that we had already seen. The fans of dubbed South Indian films noticed the similarity in these two movies ‘Magadheera’ and ‘Raabta’ and media also reported same.
Now Mega producer Allu Aravind who produced Magadhera under the banner of Geetha Arts, sought an injunction against the release of Raabta which is scheduled to hit the theaters on 9th June. They contend that Raabta copied its unique storyline and plotline in the violation of its copyright.
Trade analyst Ramesh Bala took the twitter and said, “BREAKING: #Maghadheera film makers go to court against #Raabta.. Seek an injunction against the film’s release.. Story plagiarism charge..”
The court in Hyderabad has issued notice and posted the matter to 1st June to decide whether Raabta should be permitted to release on 9th June.
