IS 'PADMAN' COPIED? READ OUT FULL DETAILS

Films generate a lot of revenue as well as it brings some troubles too. FIRs, Piracy and Plagiarism, they all exist and reflects a grey side of cinema. A few days back released movie 'Padman' actor Akshay Kumar is now booked with the charges of plagiarism. A writer named Ripu Daman Jaiswal claimed that 'Padman' scenes are copied with the script he has written which he gave to 'Dharma Productions' creative head Ryan Stephen. The writer had posted on his Facebook account, “One and a half years ago, I had written and registered a film based on the works of Arunachalam Muruganantham and Saati biodegradable sanitary pads. Have you heard about them? Yup, Arunachalam Muruganantham is the guy who had made low cost sanitary pads for rural women. I had registered the film on 5th of December 2016 from SCREEN WRITER ASSOCIATION and sent to Ryan Stephan (Karan johar's production -- Creative head) and personally to Vikram Aditya Motwane. And you know what happened? After ten days on 16th of December 2016, I heard the news that Mrs. Twinkle Khanna revealed that her production is making a film based on his life, starring AKSHAY KUMAR,” He further wrote, “Recently, the PADMAN trailer released, and most of the scenes has been taken from the summary I had sent to MR. Ryan stephan. Yes, they even copied my fictional scenes(Check out the Rakshabandan scene. In real life, Arunachalam Muruganantham has no sister.) https://www.facebook.com/Shivashorcrux/posts/1750774404952958 We just want this issue to be resolved ASAP!
