Following complaints from two writers,
Amudha Thamizhnadan and Arnika, that Endhiran
is a violation of their copyrights, the
CB CID police have issued notice to director
Shankar to appear before them and offer
an explanation. Shankar has been summoned
on Monday and Tuesday to counter the allegation.
It may be recalled that Shankar maintains
that Endhiran is based on the book En
Iniya Iyandhira by late writer Sujatha
and had modified certain parts to suit
Endhiran, which had Rajinikanth and Aishwarya
Rai went on to become a mega grosser breaking
all box office records and this allegation
from Amudha Thamizhnadan and Arnika has
raised many an eyebrow.
