It looks like RGV’s professional life can’t be too far away from a controversy. While his ongoing war of words with Pawan Kalyan’s fans on Twitter makes news every now and then, in an interesting turn of events, his latest film ‘Officer’ has landed in trouble.
Although RGV has claimed that the film is based on a real life IPS officer, the director has been accused of plagiarising the script that was originally written by P Jaya Kumar. Earlier this year, Jaya Kumar had accused RGV for stealing his original story – GST – and giving it a completely different twist. Now, the same writer, who had worked with RGV for couple of years on various scripts including Sarkar 3, has accused his former mentor of stealing his ideas. “I tried reaching out to RGV, Nagarjuna, and the producers soon after the teaser and trailer released; however, I haven’t received any response from them. So, I have sent RGV a legal notice to resolve this issue,” Jaya Kumar told a leading newspaper. He also claimed that RGV made him work on nearly 8-9 scripts, but he didn’t get paid for any of his work.
When RGV was contacted by the newspaper for his version of the story, the director is said to have brushed off Jaya Kumar’s claims and said that he doesn’t want to respond to such claims made by a deranged person.
