It seems that Tollywood superstar Pawan Kalyan’s Agnyaathavaasi is not going to overcome troubled times soon. After being unanimously panned by the critics and fans, Agnyaathavaasi is now facing a serious allegation of stealing the plot from Jerome Salle’s Largo Winch. T-Series, which had the remake rights of the 2008 French movie, had sent a legal notice to the makers of Agnyaathavaasi for copyright violations.
Apparently, the Agnyaathavaasi team have settled for a compromise with T-Series. However, since the movie has been released worldwide, director Jerome said, “(It’s) not enough.”
Jerome recently watched the Telugu film in Paris. “Screening at #LeBrady tonight. Great atmosphere thanks to the audience. I could‘ve loved the movie but unfortunately, the plot was too familiar. #LargoWinch #Agnyaathavaasi (sic),” posted Jerome recently on his Twitter account.
“I’m afraid a settlement with T-series will not be enough. It’s not only about India. The movie #Agnyaathavaasi has been released worldwide yesterday,” he added.
He further added that “Indian cinema has all the necessary talent and creativity for not having to plagiarize. And the silence from #Agnathavaasi team since one week is deafening. So let’s take action now. #LegalNotice (sic).”Agnyaathavaasi, directed by Trivikram Srinivas, has performed poorly at the box office. Reportedly, the stakeholders are facing more than 50 percent loss at the box office after the release.
