A few days ago, there are Plagiarism allegations on Koratala Siva for Acharya, now another director, Sukumar is facing similar allegations for his Pushpa. Sahitya Academy’s Yuva Puruskar winner Vempalli Gangadhar had accused Sukumar of stealing his story named ‘Tamila Coolie’.
Tamila Coolie is about the smuggling of red sanders in the Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh and coolies from Tamilnadu landing in cases. Interestingly, the premise of the story is not revealed and all these are speculations from the first posters of the film.
So, it may be too early to level Plagiarism allegations on Sukumar. On the other side, the buzz is that the regular shooting of Pushpa is likely to begin in October. The makers are planning a 40-days schedule in which around 40-50% of the shooting will be completed.Follow @THEPANIPURI
