    Sarkar Story Theft Controversy: Sarkar Story Is Mine Says AR Murugadoss After The Court Verdict


    Some time ago, the ace film-maker AR Murugadoss found himself in a soup when an associate director named Varun claimed that the plot of Sarkar was copied from a script he had written a few years ago. Following this, ARM denied these allegations. As a result, the matter reached the South Indian Writers Union. The organisation examined both the scripts and concluded that they were similar. The matter ultimately reached the Madras High Court.

    Earlier today (October 30, 2018), the case came to an end when both the parties reached a compromise. Shortly thereafter, it was reported that the Sarkar team would add a 'thanks card' and give credit to Varun. And, as expected, this created a great deal of buzz in the industry.

    Now, the Sarkar Team has made it clear that they will not be giving any credit to Varun and neither will it be adding a thanks card. However, a note will be added to the film stating that Varun too once had a similar idea and had written a story based on a similar theme.

    Interestingly, Murugadoss has also made it clear that Sarkar is his own script and he did not lift the idea from anywhere.

    On a related note, Sarkar features Vijay in the role of a tycoon and it is slated to hit the screens on November 6, 2018.
