It is widely known that Kollywood director Atlee Kumar is working on a project with Bollywood Baadshah Shah Rukh Khan. Titled Jawan, the film’s first look title teaser which was unveiled a few months back got good applause from the audience. While the film’s shooting is underway at a fast pace, as an unexpected scenario Jawan landed in legal trouble.
Reportedly, a Tamil producer named Manickam Narayanan filed a case against the Jawan film team alleging plagiarism of his 2006 released film, Perarasu starring Vijayakant in the lead role. The case was filed on director Atlee Kumar and the makers by Manickam at the Tamil Film Producers Council ( TFPC). As Narayanan owns the rights of Perarasu, he filed the complaint against Jawan team. Will the team of Jawan respond to the plagiarism reports? Remains to be seen.
Ironically, director Atlee Kumar faced similar kind of story copy allegations earlier also for a few of his films. Coming back to Jawan, the film has Lady Superstar Nayanthara as the female lead. Touted as an intense actioner, Jawan has star actor Vijay Sethupathi in a prominent role.
Co-starring Deepika Padukone in a key cameo, Jawan is being bankrolled by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment banner. While Anirudh is scoring soundtracks, Jawan is scheduled for a theatrical release in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu languages on June 2, 2023. GK Vishnu is the cinematographer for this high-budget movie.
