Atlee will make his Bollywood debut with Jawan. The film also features Tamil actors Nayanthara, Vijay Sethupathi, Yogi Babu and Priyamani. Reports suggest that actors Vijay and Deepika Padukone also have cameos in the upcoming film. Now, a complaint against director Atlee has been filed with a producers’ board for plagiarism. It has been alleged that the story of Shah Rukh Khan’s star is similar to that of Perarasu’s Vijayakanth, which was published in 2006.

On Friday, a Times of India report said producer Manikam Narayanan had filed a complaint against Atlee with the TFPC alleging that the stories of the Jawaans and Perarasu are the same. TFPC board members will investigate the complaint filed by Manikam Narayanan after Nov. 7, he added. Producer Manickam Narayanan reportedly owns the rights to the story.

Vijayakanth played a dual role as Perarasu and Ilavarasu, twin brothers, in Perarasu. Shah Rukh Khan is also rumored to play a dual role in Jawaan, but this has yet to be confirmed by the creators. Atlee, who is one of the most successful filmmakers in Tamil cinema in recent times, has also faced allegations of plagiarism in the past.

His first film Raja Rani would have been compared to Mouna Ragam of Manirathnam. His second film Theri was compared to Chathriyan, while his third film Mersal was compared to Aboorva Sagotharargal, which starred Kamal Haasan. Atlee’s latest film, Bigil, has been compared to Chak De India, among others.
