Tuesday, September 29, 2020 • Tamil Comments

Shankar one of the leading film directors in Indian cinema helmed the pan Indian blockbuster film 'Enthiran' starring Superstar Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan which released in 2010. The film produced by Sun Pictures with music score by A.R. Rahman received critical acclaim and high praise for the technical wizardry that was ahead of its time.

One Aroor Thamizha Nadaan filed a case that the story of 'Enthiran' was copied from his short story 'Jughiba' published in two different Tamil magazines in 1996 and 2007. The case has been going on for the past decade and Shankar had countered that he wrote the script ahead of the short story.

Shankar had approached the Madras High Court to ban the case but his petition was refused. The ace director has now gone for an appeal in the Supreme Court and his lawyers have filed the petition there.

Shankar meanwhile is planning to restart the shooting of his next 'Indian 2' starring Kamal Haasan in a few month's time.
