Fans of Trivikram Srinivas, call him Guruji because of his speeches and the way only he can articulate deep philosophy in simple words. He is also seen as a person who can anything work with the magic of his screenplay and words.
But from a long time, he has been facing the allegations for copying the scenes from famous movies. As he is very clever in adapting them to his story, many support it has creative adaptation and inspiration rather than blatant copy.
In the case of A..Aa, the controversy rose over him not giving credit to original writer of the story, Meena, Yaddanapudi Sulochana Rani. Even though he bought rights from her, the writer expected him to give some credit.
He added the name after two to three days, of release and the matter got settled. But in the case, of his recent movie, Agnyathavasi, the director is facing the allegations for copying the original movie scenes as it is and also, most of the screenplay except for few of his improvisations.
The matter has become a huge social media controversy as the director of the original also tweeted about the movie being the copy and asked the makers to answer for plagiarising his movie without permission.
So, the fans of the renowned writer-director are asking him to give credit to the original writer of NTR28, as the reports suggest that the story of the movie is also taken from a famous novel.
In any case, not many writers and directors, write their own stories but that doesn't change their name or fame in the public eye. Also, giving credit where due, makes the person even graceful in the eyes of the viewers. So, Trivikram Guruji, it is all up to you now!
