An assistant director named Rajasekaran has filed a complaint saying that the core story of Superstar Rajinikanth’s Kaala belongs to him. According to Rajasekaran, the title Karikalan was suggested by him during his 1996 meeting with former Rajinikanth Fans Club’s President Satyanarayana.
“Only a few days back, I saw the posters and title of Rajinikanth’s new film with Ranjith. The title and core story belongs to me with a few changes made by the team. I request the Police Commissioner to quickly investigate on this issue”, mentioned Rajasekaran in his complaint.
When asked our sources close to team Kaala, they refuted the plagiarism charges as yet another publicity stunt and they will take necessary legal action against Rajasekaran for bringing down the reputation of the film.
