Everybody knew that Sargunan`s Dhanush film Naiyaandi was a copy of Rajasenan`s Malayalam comedy Meleparambil Aanveedu. Sargunan himself had acknowledged it in his interviews and has credited it in the film`s titles.
Now producer of Meleparambil Aanveedu, Mani C Kappen has filed a court case against the makers of the Tamil film Naiyaandi starring Dhanush and Nazriya of copyright infringement.
Mani C Kappen has said in his notice that the plot and 12 scenes from the original have been copied by the Tamil director. He had plans to remake the film in Hindi and director Siddique had approached him for the remake. Now that is not going to happen.
