Megastar Chiranjeevi's prestigious 150th movie was announced yesterday by his son and producer of the film Ram Charan, under the direction of Puri Jagannadh. However it did not take much time for the film to land in muddle as plagiarism charges were reported on film's story writer, BVS Ravi.
According to the report in an English daily, Chiranjeevi's 150th movie story was same that of a story registered by Vasu Dev Varma, an NRI. He said to have written a script for Krishnam Raju and Prabhas, with the characters of Uyyalawa Narasimha Reddy and Auto Johnny respectively.
The story tracks to the character of Auto Johnny, a free spirited person, who will be guided by the traces of a freedom fighter, Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy, to do good deeds. According to Vasu Dev Varma, the story was registered in writers association with the name Okka Adugu.
The main allegation from the writer is that, Gopi Mohan has leaked the story to BVS Ravi and that's how BVS Ravi has got a nod from Chiranjeevi. As stated by Vasu, he has approached Gopi Mohan to add some fun elements to his story. Since Gopi liked his story immensely he said to have narrated it to his close friend BVS Ravi.
Apparently, BVS Ravi has made some changes to the story and impressed Chiranjeevi. While this is the story from Vasu Dev Varma's end, Gopi Mohan denied the reports stating he did not leak anybody's story to BVS Ravi and asked Vasu to continue to deal the issue at writers union.
Well! Whatever the truth might be, this had surely irked Mega fans, who are basking with the announcement of Chiranjeevi's 150. We have to wait and see where this tale ends up.
