Nayanthara starrer Dora might not release anytime soon. The film’s director Doss Ramasamy has been accused of plagiarism and theft by a television screenwriter.
Known as ‘Satellite’ Sridhar, the upcoming filmmaker alleges that the story of Dora is a derivation of his script. He told Silverscreen, “I wrote a script called Alibabavum Arpudha Car-um a few years back and have registered it with the Writer’s Union. When the trailer of Dora released, I found out that the film was very similar to mine. This could not have happened if he hadn’t stolen my script. I will do everything I can to get justice.”
Sridhar has assembled a legal team to pursue the plagiarism case against Dora and its makers.
Meanwhile, a source close to the Dora team has rubbished the plagiarism charges. According to a report in Deccan Chronicle, “Director Doss Ramasamy has put his hard work and has worked on the story on his own. He doesn’t have anything to hide and is open to proving that his script is different from that of Sridhar’s. He has also registered his story with the writer’s union and if they compare both the scripts, they would know the truth.”
Dora has Nayanthara, Thambi Ramaiah in pivotal roles. Music has been composed by Vivek Siva along with Mervin Solomon.
