A city-based novelist has accused ‘Krrish 3’ director-producer Rakesh Roshan of “stealing” the movie’s story from his novel and filed a police complaint against him under the Copyright Act.

Writer Roop Narayan Sonkar has alleged that Roshan stole the ‘Krrish 3’ story from his novel ‘Suardan’.

Sonkar has submitted a copy of his novel along with the complaint, police said, adding a case has been registered against the celebrated filmmaker.

The novelist claimed he published ‘Suardan’ in 2010 in which he had envisioned a creature combining ‘manav’ (man) and ‘janwar’ (animal) and named it ‘Manwar’.

He said the 2013 film also has a creature combining the attributes of man and animal and claimed Roshan used his story without obtaining his permission.

When reached for comments, Roshan texted a message, saying “The matter is sub-judice. I cannot comment.”

The police said the matter will be investigated and, if accusations are found to be true, further action will be taken.
