Dasavatharam is one of the milestone achievement by Kamal Haasan. But there is a case filed in the Madras High court by Assistant director Senthil Kumar, stating that the story for the film was his own work.
Senthil Kumar hails from Tambaram, he had stated in the petition ,” Dasavatharam which had Kamal Hasan in the lead role was released a few months back. I had wrote the story of this film and sent to Kamal through registered post. Kamal’s assistant Murali also has acknowledged . But after that they never contacted me. I told them the story of Dasavatharam was mine. They do not accept that.
I had reported this matter to the police commissioner but he did not file a case against Kamal Haasan. Then I filed a petition before the Tambaram Magistrate. The Court gave directions to Alwarpet police station to take action on the petition. But they also did not take action. Some people are threatening me using Kamal’s name saying that they would murder me. Hence I request the Court to interrogate the concerned people and direct the concerned police to file a case and take necessary action.”
The matter came before Judge Ragupathy. The government pleader Asan Muhammad Jinna appeared before the judge and said that there was no such complaint. The Judge directed the government advocate and asked him to find out from Alwarpet police station whether any such complaint has been made, within a week.
