FIR filed against Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man over plagiarism; the complainant demands justice

In a sudden turn of events, Akshay Kumar has found himself in a plagiarism row with his latest release, Pad Man.

Akshay’s intention was to only educate the masses by narrating the inspiring story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, who introduced low cost sanitary pad in rural areas. However, a writer named Ripu Daman Jaiswal has now issued a statement accusing the makers of Pad Man for lifting his story which he had written one and half years ago.

He’s also shared a Facebook post with screenshots of his script that he had sent to the creative head of Dharma Productions a year and half back but failed to receive any response from them. Now that the film has hit the screens despite his plea, he is left with no choice but to get legal help.
