Ever since the film was released, the makers of 'Srimanthudu' had to face plagiarism charges. A writer named Sharat Chandra alleged that the makers had copied his novel 'Chachchentha Prema' published in Swathi weekly.
Furthermore, the writer approached Nampally Court a couple of days ago seeking justice. Later, the makers of 'Srimanthudu' received summons from the Nampally court. It was speculated that the issues would be resolved outside the court.
However, Srimanthudu' makers approached High Court some days ago. Finally, the court's judgement came in favour of the makers as the court gave stay orders on the lower court's decision. This happens to be a huge shocker to the writer Sharat Chandra. With this entire episode, it is understood that court's people lacked the interest on reading Telugu noverls!!!
