After Pawan Kalyan’s ‘Agnyaathavaasi’ hit the screens few days ago during the festive season of Sankranti, not many were happy with the film specially fans of the actor. The film failed to impress the Telugu audiences and eventually headed to be one of the biggest duds in Pawan Kalyan and Trivikram Srinivas’ career. Agnyaathavaasi already had the plagiarism sword hanging on its neck after it was being said that the film was a freemake of French film ‘Largo Winch’. Directed by Jerome Salle, Largo Winch also has a similar backdrop of a son avenging the death of his father who owns a business empire. Jerome Salle had even tweeted saying that he is looking forward to watching the film after he heard that the story of Agnyaathavaasi is the same. However, the makers of Agnyaathavaasi went for a settlement with T-Series who own the remake rights of Largo Winch. However, Jerome, after watching the film, had tweeted that a settlement with T-Series is not enough since the film was released worldwide.
And now, Jerome has further said that he may proceed legally against the makers of Agnyaathavaasi and take an action since they have been silent, and haven’t responded to any of these. “Indian cinema has all the necessary talent and creativity for not having to plagiarize. And the silence from #Agnathavaasi team since one week is deafening. So let’s take action now. #LegalNotice ” Jerome posted on his Twitter account. Looks like this is going the ugly path and the makers of Agnyaathavaasi still have a lot to face, besides the film’s debacle.
Jérôme Salle, before watching Agnyaathavaasi, had tweeted – “Screening at #LeBrady tonight. Great atmosphere thanks to the audience. I could‘ve loved the movie but unfortunately the plot was too familiar. #LargoWinch #Agnyaathavaasi “
And after watching the film, Jérôme Salle tweeted – “I’m afraid a settlement with T-series will not be enough. It’s not only about India. The movie #Agnyaathavaasi has been released worldwide yesterday.”
