Endhiran story stolen?!!!
Aarur Tamil Nadan alias Amutha Tamil Nadan, who is a deputy news editor with ‘Nakeeran’ , came to the police commissioner’s office with his advocates G Edwig and L Sivakumar and submitted the petition. “I had written a small novel ‘Jugiba’ in a magazine called ‘Iniya Udhayam’ , in 1996. My novel was repeated in ‘Dhik Dhik Dheepika’ magazine in 2007 with my permission . Director Shankar and producer Kalanithi Maran stole the raw story from my novel and added ingredients to the movie like songs, fights and graphics. Many of my friends and relatives informed me about the movie.I have sent a legal notice to director Shankar and producer Kalanithi Maran. As I did not get any response from them, I have now approached the city police commissioner,” the complainant told reporters.
