GhanchakkarPresently, it’s something of a trend for every film to land in some or the other kind of controversy a couple of days before its launch and forthcoming comedy film Ghanchakkar is no different.

It seems that a Dhirendra Kumar, who hails from Nepal, has charged the producers of hijacking his script, which he had written and registered way back in 2010-2011. Kumar says that he got to know about the similarities between the 2 plots when he saw the promos and contacted the Film Writer’s Association on May 20 with a complaint.Dhirendra Kumar has also sent a legal notice to the production house, seeking a stay order on the movie from the High Court.

A UTV source said that they’ve indeed received the notice and will respond to it soon. Directed by Rajkumar Gupta, Ghanchakkar actors Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan and revolves around a thief, who loses his memory after a heist.
