Chandrababu Naidu-YSR story for web-series stolen from me: Deva Katta

Director Raj is reportedly all set to direct a web series revolving around the early friendship between late YS Rajasekhar Reddy and Nara Chandrababu Naidu. The web series is yet to be announced officially. On Tuesday, however, acclaimed director Deva Katta took to Twitter to allege that the story was originally penned by him.

The ‘Prasthanam’, putting out a series of tweets, said, "In 2017, I wrote a script paying homage to the iconic YSR-CBN political life, imagining a fictional friendship/professional rivalry between them and registered it under the copyrights act. I have also registered multiple versions of this script since 2017. The idea is now being hijacked by some people here over several party talks but I hope they limit their fiction to the public domain and don’t invite any legal action by copying any of my registered themes/scenes."

The 'Vennela' maker added, “Earlier this same person (no name has been mentioned) stole another script that I had pitched directly and made a disaster out of it. This time I won’t let him spoil another exciting script out of sheer respect for YSR gaaru and CBN gaaru."

Deva Katta added that the script was first written as a three-part film inspired by the classic 'Godfather'. "Our team has pitched this idea to some major OTT platforms and our legal team is closely following up with this news,” the 'Autonagar Surya' director tweeted.
