Few days ahead of Power Star Pawan Kalyan's Agnyaatavaasi release, news spread that the film is a freemake of French thriller Largo Winch directed by Jerome Salle.
Filmmakers chose to maintain a stoic silence but they got a huge shock when T-Series which owned the remake rights of the film in all Indian languages slapped notices accusing them of plagiarism.
However they managed to solve the issue mutually, thanks to hot hunk Rana who negotiated a deal and convinced T-Series owners to reduce their demand of 15 Crs by around 5 Crs and part with the remake rights.
Jerome Salle who kept a tab on these developments watched Agnyaatavaasi first show in France yesterday and went on record that he couldn't enjoy the film as he witnessed many similarities.
Many thought that the matter ended there. However Jerome Salle came with another furious tweet posting “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 is finding many takers who are asking him to sue the Agnyaatavaasi filmmakers. The question is will Trivikram Srinivas who is accused of blatantly lifting the scenes from Largo Winch maintain the same silence? Now that producer and buyers are to lose hugely, can Jerome calm down his attack?
