Hyderabad: Well-known scriptwriter Kona Venkat has slammed the reports that his story for director Srinu Vaitla's much-hyped movie Baadshah starring Junior NTR and Kajal Aggarwal in leads, is not an original one. The writer says that it is not a copy or reproduction of any film. Rather it is very much an original piece written by him in collaboration with Gopimohan.
Baadshah, which is a romantic-action drama, is one of the highly-awaited Telugu movies of 2013. Besides Junior NTR, the movie has created lot of curiosity among the film goers for its story, which has been creating new buzz on the social networking platforms everyday. The latest speculation is that it is inspired or copied from another Hollywood film and it is not an original script.
Upset Kona Venkat, who is quite active on the micro blogging sites, took to his Twitter page to deny the claims. He tweeted, "Baadshah is a 100% original story written by Me & Gopimohan. It's not copied or inspired from any film in any language. All rumors r trash. I read the story doing rounds in the market as Baadshah story. Actually it's not bad. For the first time I found creativity in a rumor."
However, Baadshah is currently in the last leg of its shooting. Its production unit has canned maximum portions of the film in Seoul, Italy, Switzerland and Bangkok. Recently, the film unit has comeback to India and started new shooting schedule at a private house in Hyderabad. The movie is scheduled to release worldwide on April 5.
