The concept of conjoined twins or Siamese twins is something new in
Indian cinema. So, when KV Anand announced his project Maattrraan,
which will have Surya in the role of conjoined twins, it was
reported that the movie was a remake of a Hollywood flick Stuck
on You. However, the Ghajini star has rubbished the
rumours and has claimed that the film has an original story.
At a press meet, Surya said that there is no need for his team
to lift anything from a Hollywood team. They have got a wonderful
team and the writers SuBha have written a fresh story. He further
added that he became aware of Struck on You only after it
was reported by media.
Surya claims that there have been many films on conjoined twins
but Maattrraan stands different from other Hollywood
movies. Writers SuBha have worked hard on the storyline for about
two years and he has almost lived the characters of Agilan and
Vimal for a year now.
Meanwhile, Maattrraan, which stars Surya and Kajal
Aggarwal in the leads, has been censored with 'U' certificate.
It will hit the screens on October 12.
