The first controversy to hit TKS was that the makers of Ra.One claimed that both the films have the same plot, Kireet Khurana director of the film said, "It's possible that they might have a similar story, I don't know what Shahrukh Khan's script is about but our script is not inspired by anyone, it's an original script."
The second argument to hit the makers of TKS is regarding Guppy, one of the characters in the film who constantly harasses The Devtoons by breaking out into a jingle. This apparently, has not gone down well with veteran composer Bappi Lahiri who believes the character is trying to make fun of his real life personality. The singer-music composer is in fact taking legal action for defamation.
Kireet Khurana, director of the film, who was in Hyderabad, came home to find a legal notice in his inbox, appalled he said, "I don't think that there are any marked similarities but for the record, Guppy wears an Elvis type getup and as an animator we derive inspirations from various sources. Like the lights on Guppy's outfit has been inspired from the Amitabh Bachchan song 'Saara Zamaana' from the film Yaarana." Kireet also sheds light on the characters cacophonic singing skills which is all attributed from Astrix.
"We are getting tremendous response, I got back from R Mall in Mumbai, and everywhere, kids and their families were applauding the film." Kireet remarks excitedly waiting for the films release. "I think things are looking very good, it's very over whelming," says the debutant director.
