A Mumbai-based filmmaker Kritik Kumar Pandey filed a complaint at the Versova Police Station against Tiger Shroff and Sabbir Khan.
Pandey alleged the duo of “creative theft” for stealing the storyline of Munna Michael from him. In a press note, he said, “Tiger took my story a year ago and kept coaxing me to give him more details about my project titled ‘MJ Return’. He had committed to doing the film with me, but he has now gone on to announce another project with a similar storyline.”
When contacted, Sabbir said he would revert after meeting his lawyer. The source said, “Tiger and Sabbir haven’t even heard of a man called Kritik. He is doing it just for publicity. More often than not, filmmakers don’t take the legal route due to lack of time. But this news has come as a shock to Tiger and Sabbir as being embroiled in a needless controversy just after their announcement is the last thing they wanted. They are finalising paperwork to file a defamation case against this man.”
The Flying Jatt actor Tiger Shroff and his Baaghi director Sabbir Khan will have to fight it out at court to prove the originality of their upcoming project Munna Michael.
