Upendra's Kannada movie Super, which marks his comeback to direction after ten years, is doing very well at the Box Office. But the allegations of plagiarism against him have disturbed his tranquility of mind. Recently, director Rajshekhar was said to have visited his residence and had accused him of stealing his story. But Uppi has slammed his allegation stating that it is just a trick of getting free publicity.
It is reported that Rajshekhar had written a story and director KV Raju had penned the screenplay for it. Rajshekhar was said to have narrated the same story to Upendra a couple of years ago, but he could not start the project over remuneration issues. Now, both the directors have claimed that the story of Super is the same as theirs, but some minor changes have been made to the screenplay.
Meanwhile, Upendra has denied their allegations stating that Super is an original story and he has not stolen any idea from others script. He says that one of the two directors is said to be mentally unsound and another is making allegations against him for publicity. Now, he has thrown a challenge against those directors by asking them to show him any proof if they are confident of plagiarising their script.
However, Uppi's movie Super is doing very well at the collection centres. The movie has completed more than 30 days at the Box Office and it is declared a super-hit film. At this juncture, Uppi asks them only one question. That is why do the two directors wake up so many days after its release? Will they give a suitable reply to his query.
