Director Sujeeth is basking in the success of 'Saaho'. He had previously helmed 'Run Raja Run' starring Sharwanand in the lead role which did extremely well at the box office.
Report suggests that Sujeeth is down with Dengue fever. We wish him a speedy recovery. There were reports doing the rounds that 'Saaho' is a copy of French Film 'Largo Winch'. Sujeeth put an end to all speculation by clearing the air about Saaho plagiarism.
He stated: "To be honest, I didn't watch Laro Winch. I just changed the story of earlier film Run Raja Run and made it Saaho. Many films came up with the plot of hero avenging his father's death by coming in from an exile. Are all of them lifted from Largo Winch?"
"Despite all the negativity, people are showering praises on Saaho. I have been getting calls from North Indian states like Bihar and people over there told me that they would've constructed a temple for me if I was a Bihari.
My concern is that our people are not encouraging when a Telugu director made a pan-Indian film. Anyways, I am happy with the way the audience is enjoying it and collection prove the same," added Sujeeth.
'Saaho' director scored a brownie point for at least coming out in the open and clearing the air about plagiarism. There are many directors who just want to maintain silence over the controversy. Hats off to Sujeeth because he is very new to the film industry compared to experienced directors.
Last year, Trivikram Srinivas too faced plagiarism issues at the time of 'Agnyaathvaasi'. The film featured Pawan Kalyan in lead role. Trivikram never responded to the issue or even tried to clear the air. He just chose to remain mum. His silence still makes people woner why he chose to do so.
Now, with Sujeeth coming out in the open to put an end all speculation, he sure has won the respect and love of Telugu audience.
