A writer named Akash Aditya Lama had a few days back filed a case in the Mumbai High Court alleging that Ashutosh Gowariker has made ‘Mohenjo Daro’ by copying the story he had written for his play. After taking up the case, the High Court declared his allegation baseless and fined him with Rs 1.5 lakh for wasting the time of the court.

Akashaditya has now hosted a press conference in Mumbai against the judgment that came on 2nd August. Along with the team of ‘Mohenjo Daro’ play, Lama held the press meet and shared all of the evidence with the media relating to the similarities between the play and the film. “I will continue this fight, and I will go to the Supreme Court to challenge the judgment of Mumbai High Court. I have sold my property on 27th June to file this case in high court, and I have no money to pay the fine imposed by High Court. It’s no more just my fight but the fight of every common man who move to a legal system for justice and get punished in return’.
