Director Vijay was accused of many plagiarism charges in his career. People said his Deiva Thirumagal was lifted from I Am Sam and Madarasapattinam’s core plot was inspired from Titanic.
Thalaivaa was compared with many gangster films and now, an assistant director named Chandrakumar claims that the story of Diya is actually written by him and someone could’ve narrated it to director Vijay.
But critics say Diya is inspired from various films including Kana Kanmani (Malayalam) and Gauri-The Unborn Child (Hindi). So Chandrakumar’s allegation is baseless because many films handled abortion theme in a horror thriller angle.
Director Vijay hasn’t opened up on the plagiarism charges, he is currently busy with the post-production work of his upcoming dance based family entertainer film Lakshmi starring Prabhu Deva and Aishwarya Rajesh.
