Assistant manager Kamal Kant Chandra, the guy who’d accused the makers of Bala of plagiarising his thought, has filed a police complaint under Section 420 (cheating) and 406 (breach of trust) in the Kashimira police channel, Mid-Day reported.
Chandra had previously registered a case in the Bombay High Court from Ayushmann Khurrana, the direct of the movie, the manager Amar Kaushik and manufacturer Dinesh Vijan and had alleged that they had copied his notion of a balding guy from among his endeavors.
Bala is now in the second program of its filming. Ayushmann stars reverse Bhumi Pednekar from the Movie. He has previously worked with her at Dum Laga Ke Haisha and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
“It’s wrong to start shooting before the court has given its verdict. At the last hearing, they said that they would take time to develop the script. How did they start shooting in 15 days? This means they gave a misleading picture to the court. I approached the vacation bench four days ago, but they stated that I should wait for the next hearing on June 10. But the makers might finish [a chunk of] the film by then and argue that since a lot of money is at stake, the court should rule in their favour,” Chandra said.
“I enrolled my notion together with Screen Writers’ Association at 2016 while their script was enrolled in 2018,” he added.
Ayushmann Khurrana’s legal group said in a statement, “What has been communicated to you is a malafide distortion of actual facts specially with regard to the proceedings of April 9, 2019. In fact, Mr. Chandra also moved the Bombay High court in vacation (May 29) in this regard and was not granted any relief. In any event as the matter is sub judice and since the next date of hearing is June 10, 2019 we are are not commenting any further. Our script is original and we will show that to the court when the matter comes up.”
