Tamil novelist Nadan petitions against Endhiran makers

MUMBAI: A Tamil novelist, Amutha Tamil Nadan, working for Tamil magazine Nakeeran in a complaint lodged with Chennai city police commissioner T Rajendran has accused the producer and director of the Rajinikanth-starrer Endhiran of stealing the story idea of the film from his novel ‘Jugiba‘ , that was published in a magazine in 1996.


Nadan, who is a deputy news editor with Nakeeran, submitted his petition to the police commissioner after having arrived at his office with his advocates G Edwig and L Sivakumar.


"I had written a small novel ‘Jugiba‘ in a magazine called ‘Iniya Udhayam‘ , in 1996. My novel was repeated in ‘Dhik Dhik Dheepika‘ magazine in 2007 with my permission. Director Shankar and producer Kalanithi Maran stole the raw story from my novel and added ingredients to the film like songs, fights and graphics.


"Many of my friends and relatives informed me about the movie. Earlier, I sent a legal notice to director Shankar and producer Kalanithi Maran but since I did not get any response from them, I have now approached the city police commissioner," the complainant said in a statement.


Nadan has been in the literary field since his school days.
