Magadheera lands in controversy!

S.S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 has been making hundreds of crores on one side and on the other he has been courting controversy for Magadheera. Popular author S.P.Chari is claiming that the story is his. He has gone so far as to file a petition in the Hyderabad Civil Court claiming that Magadheera is copied from his novel, Chanderi. They have not credited him.
He says, “My novel, Chanderi is inspired by the legend of Hardoul and Indumati who lived in the Chanderi and Orchathe kingdoms of Madhya Pradesh around 400 years ago. The lovers commit suicide by jumping from the top of a hill because of Hardoul’s brother who doesn’t let them get married. They are reborn in Andhra Pradesh and get united. The makers of Magadheera merely changed the names of the lead characters to Harsha and Indira and the antagonist’s character was tweaked and shown as a cousin of Indira.
