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.
