Raabta Is Nothing But Magadheera : Allu Arvind
The screeing of Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Raabta is likely to be stalled as the star producer Allu Arvind of Geetha Arts on Thursday sought injunction against its release over copyright infringement.
The movie is slated to be released on June 9.
“Raabta is nothing but our Magadheera, directed by SS Rajamouli. We sought their explanations but of no avail. They appear to have produced the movie not as a remake but a free make” Aravind said in a statement.
“This is to inform to the large public that we, Geetha Arts, the original makers of ‘Magadheeraa’ felt through various sources including the trailer and publicity material that the Hindi film ‘Raabta’ is being remade violating the copyrights Act,” Arvind stated
Gita Arts have filed a petition in a civil court in Hyderabad and the court has issued notices to the producers and posted the matter to June 1. We sought injuction against its release, Aravind said.
“Raabta”, directed by Dinesh Vijan, also stars Kriti Sanon.
