Salman Khan's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" has landed in legal trouble as a person has claimed that the story of the film has been plagiarised.
The plaintiff, Mahim Joshi, has filed a case with the Bombay High Court alleging that the story of "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" was copied from a story that he had written, and it was also registered with the Film Writers Association, according to PTI.
Joshi stated in the suit that he realised that "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" was plagiarised only after watching the movie.
While Salman's "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" is slated to be premiered on Television on 11 October, Joshi has demanded credit for the film's story and suitable compensation from the makers of the film for allegedly using his script, according to the report.
The plaintiff had also demanded a stay on the world Television premier of the movie, but the Court on Thursday reportedly denied stay on the film's TV premier and stated that the next hearing of the case will be on 20 October.
The movie, "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", turned out to be one of the biggest blockbusters of all time and writer KV Vijayendra Prasad received a lot of accolades for the same.
The story of the film revolves around a mute Pakistani girl who is lost in India and how an Indian man faces a lot of trouble to take her back to the neighbouring nation forms the crux of the story.
