Filmmaker Claims "Bala" Is His Life Story, Approaches Court For Stay

Imran Asif Fazal |Nov 06, 2019

The filmmaker approached Supreme Court and has demanded that the film "Bala" should be put on permanent stay.

Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Bala is now embroiled in  a fresh controversy over plagiarism charges. A budding director Kamal Kant Chandra has now claimed that script of Bala has been stolen from his biopic. Chandra has approached the court demanding permanent stay on release of the film. Recently, a Jaipur court issued summons against the film's producers, after a man named Naman Goyal alleged that Bala was plagiarised from his short film.

"I want that there should be a permanent stay on the film Bala, and that I get to make the film. It is basically my biopic. It's my life story," said Chandra, whose upcoming film Marksheet features Mahesh Bhatt. Chandra further accused that Ayushmann Khurrana and the makers of the film have lifted the concept from his life story. Chandra claims it all started in 2017, when he approached Ayushmann Khurrana to star in his film, about a young man suffering from premature balding.

"I met Ayushmann during the promotion of Bareilly Ki Barfi," he further alleged. A meeting was fixed between the two but the actor failed to turn up. Still the director shared the story with him. He followed up with the actor over the next year or so. Finally, he got a call from Ayushmann's manager saying the actor wasn't interested in playing a bald guy at that time.

Then, in December 2018, he read that Ayushmann was all set to play a man with premature balding in a film that was not his. "I was shocked. I sent him a legal notice. I also filed a case against him and the makers in Bombay High Court in March. Bala producer Dinesh Vijan's company said that they were working on the script that time," Chandra.

"I have now moved to the Supreme Court. There was a hearing and the Court has ordered Bombay High Court to resolve the matter before Bala releases on November 8. I want that there should be a permanent stay on the film and that I get to make the film. It is basically my biopic."
