Short film director Anbu Rajasekar has lodged a complaint against AR Murugadoss and Vijay alleging that they stole his story and made 'Kaththi'.
Anbu has said that he will go on a hunger strike along with the Tamil Nadu Farmers Association and other groups demanding Murugadoss’s arrest.
Vijay’s Kaththi, produced by Lyca Productions, was released in 2014. Written and Directed by AR Murugadoss, Kaththi was a huge hit.
Anbu Rajasekar, director of Keela Veedhi, Tirukkattupalli claimed that Kaththi’s story has been lifted from his short film "Thaagabhoomi".
In December 2014, Anbu filed a petition in the Thanjavur court against Vijay and AR Murugadoss stating that the film ‘Kaththi’ is a copy of his short film ‘Thaagabhoomi’ and demanded 2 crores as compensation. The court admitted the case and summoned Murugadoss and Vijay.
In September 2015, he sought a ban on Vijay starrer ‘Puli’, until the case gets resolved.
