Vijay’s next outing Sarkar landed into plagiarism issues after the story had clean match with Varun Rajendran’s Sengol which has been registered with the South Indian Film Writers Association (SWAN). The story has been penned by Varun in 2007 and SWAN is ready to hand over a letter to Varun Rajendran stating that the entire story of Sarkar matches Sengol.
This is a huge blow for Sarkar team and a suit has been filed in Madras High Court to stop the film’s release. Varun Rajendran sought remuneration of Rs 30 lakhs and credits for the script. The judge asked the counsel to verify the records and schedule the hearing next Thursday. Sun Pictures and AR Murugadoss have filed the caveat petitions. Varun Rajendran claimed that Sarkar is his story with some minor changes. The film has been announced for November 6th release.
