A police complaint has been registered against Tiger Shroff and "Baaghi" director Sabbir Khan. One film-maker has accused the "A Flying Jatt" actor and Sabbir, along with some others, of stealing his script for an upcoming movie titled "Munna and Michael."
One Mumbai-based director named Kritik Kumar Pandey has filed a complaint, alleging that Tiger and others have stolen his story for the actor's upcoming movie. Sabbir Khan is reportedly planning to make a film titled "Munna and Michael," the story of which has been stolen from Pandey's script for "MJ Return," the complainant said.
"Hi, this is Kritik Kumar, a director by profession. Recently I became the victim of a fraud. Tiger Shroff with the help of Mr Sabbir Khan, Caa Kwan Talent Management Agency and producer Viki Rajani committed a fraud on me. Mr Tiger Shroff took my story a year back and kept taking all the details of my project "MJ Return".'
He even took the teaser of my film with the commitment of working on it with me. But now he has announced another film 'Munna and Michael' which is totally my film and my story. He just changed the name of film from "MJ Return" to "Munna and Michael." In this context I have lodged a complaint in Versova police station," the director said in a statement released to Bollywoodlife.
The film "Munna and Michael" will reportedly be a story about a slum boy who ideolises legendary dancer and singer late Michael Jackson. This would be Tiger and Sabbir's third film together, after "Heropanti" and "Baaghi."
"Tiger is phenomenal in his action as well as dance and his role in 'Munna Michael' is tailor-made to showcase his winning moves. Sabbir and Tiger have proven their hit pairing and audiences can once again look forward to magic," Mumbai Mirror had quoted the producer as saying. Tiger will next be seen in a super-hero film titled "A Flying Jatt" that is slated to be released on Aug. 25.
