Some time ago, an associate director named Varun accused AR Murugadoss of plagiarism and claimed that his film Sarkar was a copy of a script he had written a few years ago. Following this, the Ghajini director refuted these claims and the matter reached the Writers Union. The Writers Union found similarities between Sarkar and Varun's script. Thereafter, the associate approached the Madras High Court. Yesterday (October 30, 2018), the case came to a close when the makers of Sarkar agreed to acknowledge that Varun had come up with Sarkar-like story long before them.
Following the final resolution, K Bhagyaraj revealed in an interview that Vijay had asked him to look into the matter in an impartial manner and do full justice to his position. Bhagyaraj, who is the head of the Writers Union, also revealed that Vijay told him to follow all the rules while looking into the Sarkar story theft case.
Needless to say, Vijay's reaction to the case is quite classy and it proves that he richly deserves to be called 'Thalapathy'.
In case you did not know, Sarkar is touted to be a political thriller and it features Vijay in the role of a tycoon who returns to India from the US to cast his vote. The film is slated to hit the screens on November 6, 2018.
