Makers of Ram Charan and Kal Aggarwal’s Telugu movie ‘Magadheera’ on Thursday morning backed out a palgiarism case they smashed against the makers of Bollywood movie Raabta.
During the case hearing, many differences were pointed out with respect to the scripts of both the movie.
Director Dinesh Vijan told IANS “We presented our case to the honourable court as to how the films are not similar. In the morning, the makers of ‘Magadheera’ withdrew their case.”
The Lawyers who represented Raabta made clear that the characters in the movie their storyline development, the role of villain, the foreign locations and most importantly the climax of the film are completely and materially different from ‘Magadheera’.
A statement issued on behalf of the ‘Raabta’ team said the lawyers pointed out that the concerns of the makers of ‘Magadheera’ that the warriors scene has been lifted in ‘Raabta’ were unfounded as there was no such scene either in their film or the trailer.
“Unlike ‘Magadheera’, the villainous character was, in fact, an anti-hero and a parallel interest point for the heroine. Even in the back story depicting the past life of characters, the hero of the film actually plays a negative character for most part,” the statement read further.
‘Raabta’ features actress Kriti Sanon, and it will now release on Friday. ‘Magadheera’, which came out in 2009, was directed by S.S. Rajamouli.
