Director SD Vijay Milton is upset with the plagiarism charges on him over his last-week release Goli Soda. He claims that it is a baseless allegation and has challenged people to prove it with evidence. However, he is happy with the response that the flick is getting from audience and he has thanked them.
"Firstly, I would like to thank the audience for making my film a big hit, especially to the positive word-of-mouth generated via online medium. But I'm saddened with the fact that some are accusing me of stealing or copying this story," Milton was quoted by IANS.
Vijay Milton adds that he is not angry because he has not done anything wrong. "I'm not angry with these allegations because I haven't done anything wrong. My film is about the pursuit for identity of the four kids. I don't think I would steal someone else's identity and make a film on this subject," he said.
Vijay Milton recalls that he had this story in mind for many years and approached producers to make the film. But none of them were impressed and ready to produce the film. He used to work as a cinematographer in weekdays and started working on the film during weekends with the money earned by him as a cameraman.
He ends on the note that we can't make a successful flick by just stealing the story as there are many departments like screenplay, dialogues, music, which are equally important for the success of a movie.
