Amudha Thamizhnadan has come out with
an allegation that Endhiran is a replication
of his published and copyrighted short
story titled Jookiba. The author has claimed
that this story was first published in
1996 in the magazine Iniya Udayam and
was republished in the book Thik Thik
Deepika, by Charu Prabha Publications.
He also accused director Shankar for
copying his copyrighted version of the
short story in the year 1997, one year
after it was published, and passing it
off as his own.
Amudha Thamizhnadan and his advocate
Edwick have filed a complaint with the
Chennai police and have said that a civil
case will be made against director Shankar
and Endhiran’s producer initially.
A criminal case will follow, they said.
