Director Maruthi's films getting into controversies is nothing new. Victory Venkatesh's Radha movie was shelved due to one such controversy.
Be it Bhale bhale Magadivoi, Lovers, Close Friends, Prema Katha Chitram, eerojullo..there were always controversies about the credits he claims.
Mahanubhavudu seems to be getting into the same zone now. Its roumoured that Mahanubhavudu is a Freemake of a Malayalam Hit film titled 'North 24 Kaatham' in which Fahadh Faasil, Swathi played the lead role. In both the films Hero suffers from OCD problem. Is it just a coincidence?? Hopefully..
During Radha movie controversy Maruthi arranged for a pressmeet and said "“I am an original thinker and whatever I have made so far is original. In fact in the past one of my producers asked me to direct a remake of a popular Tamil film but I politely declined the offer as I cannot work that way. If tomorrow the writers association feels that the script is copied I won’t do this film because I feel uncomfortable making copied films”.
Hope Maruthi will prove all the roumors wrong and come up with flying colors. We wish Maruthi all the very best!!!
