Mahesh Babu summoned by Nampally Sessions Court in Srimanthudu Copyright case

mahesh babuTollywood superstar Mahesh Babu has been summoned by the Nampally Sessions Court, Hyderabad in a copyright infringement suit filed by Novelist M Sarat Chandra. Sarath Chandra is alleging that Mahesh Babu’s 2015 box office blockbuster Srimanthudu is based on his novel ‘Chachchenta Prema’ that was published in a magazine in 2012.

Based on Sarat’s petition the Court has asked the actor Mahesh Babu, director Koratala Siva and producer Y Naveen to appear before the court in person. The trio filed a petition before the Sessions Court seeking exemption from appearing in the Court. The Court refused to grant exemption from appearing before the court in this case and has directed them to appear before the court for examination during the next hearing.

Mahesh is currently shooting for his Tamil-Telugu film Spyder, which is directed by AR Murugadoss. The espionage thriller is nearing completion and soon the post production will begin. Spyder has been in the making for nearly a year now. Murugadoss is taking his own sweet time to complete the project, given that there is a lot of expectations from his maiden project with Mahesh. The production of Spyder has reportedly taken more time than expected affecting Mahesh’s other film commitments. After wrapping up shooting for his Tamil debut, Mahesh will join the sets of Bharat Ane Nenu, which will be directed by Siva.

Spyder has been confirmed as a Dussehra release, setting a stage for box office clash with Balakrishna’s Paisa Vasool. Mahesh’s next film with Siva has been titled Bharath Ane Nenu, a political thriller that will hit the screens early next year.
