Case filed against Ayushmann for stealing idea for film: Report

Ayushmann had two of the biggest hits of 2018 and he will be seen in different films in this year as well including a film titled Bala, about premature balding. However, even before work has commenced on the film, the actor along with the producer Dinesh Vijan and director Amar Kaushik have landed in legal trouble.

According to a report in Nav Bharat Times, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana assistant director Kamal Kant Chandra filed a case in the Bombay High Court on Friday against the trio, accusing them of lifting the idea from his project, Wig.

The report states that Kamal Kant, who assisted on films such as Daav Dev and Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana, has claimed meeting Ayushmann on the sets of his film Bareilly Ki Barfi. Kamal said that he shared his idea of a man struggling with premature balding with Ayushmann on Whatsapp, who really liked it and invited him to discuss it. Kamal alleges that while Ayushmann did not follow up with him at all, the actor came up with a similar film idea after a few days.

Kamal added that he had sent a legal notice to all three — Ayushmann, Dinesh and Amar but did not get any response and therefore, went on to file a case against them.

On being asked about the same, Amar, who is currently busy with the recee for the film in Lucknow, said, “I have no idea about all this. We have been writing the story since 4-5 months. The two characters might be similar, I don’t know. Neither I know his script nor I have ever met him. There can be many stories about a bald man. I have been writing my story since day one. I don’t know anything else. As far as the case is concerned, the producers will look into it.”
