Recently a scene from Vijay Shanthi’s Shambhavi IPS was making the rounds in the social media. This scene had stunning resemblance to one of the scenes in Rajamouli’s Vikramarkudu where the villain’s son slips on bullets, and thereby falls from a building and dies. Now, few sections of the social media are criticizing Rajamouli of copying.
However, Rajamouli quickly clarified this and said ” I’ve copied from other films/novels before, but not the bullets scene from Vikramarkudu. That was written by my father long back and I don’t know how that made its way into Sambhavi IPS. I neither have time nor interest to dig into it. This is for people who believe me. Those who like to believe otherwise, please feel free to do so.. :)”
