Srimanthudu Controversy: Copy Story
Srimanthudu movie starring superstar Mahesh Babu and Shruti Haasan is a blockbuster. Writer Sarath Chandra alleged that Srimanthudu story was originally written by him. He claimed that he had written a story titled ‘Chachentha Prema’ in 2012 for Swathi magazine and that Koratala Siva directed Srimanthudu based on his story.
Sarath Chandra alleged in a press meet yesterday that Srimanthudu was done by Koratala Siva while he was making plans to do a film on the concept. Story of Srimanthudu is similar to that of Chachentha Prema. He also said that he had already narrated the story to Nara Rohit in past, who nodded to it. Also Sarath Chandra said that he had already held talks with Jayalakshmi Films production house. The writer mentioned that he filed a case against Koratala Siva and also complained to Tollywood’s seniors about the matter but in vain. He demanded justice for Jayalakshmi Films head Venkata Rao and himself.
