The makers and the star-cast of the upcoming period drama ‘Panipat‘ are promoting their film in full swing. But looks like the film has landed in legal trouble, as a renowned novelist, Vishwas Patil has accused the makers of stealing his plot from his 1988’s historical fiction novel.

As per a recent report in PTI, the bestselling Marathi novelist, Vishwas Patil had filed a lawsuit against the makers of ‘Panipat’. Patil claims that he will publicly apologize to the makers of ‘Panipat’ if they prove that their film is not inspired by his 1988 novel of the same name.

The novelist told the news agency, “The moment I watched the trailer, I was very sure they (the makers) had stolen the soul of my book, and then there was no other alternative left but to go to the court. I have asked them to show me both the script and the movie. If I am wrong and they have not lifted from my plot, then I’ll publicly apologize, else they have to compensate.”

However, Patil’s plea has been rejected. Bombay High Court has not entertained his plea and has also quashed the case filed by him. The High court even rejected Patil’s demand for the makers to arrange a screening for him.

Talking about the film, this Ashutosh Gowariker directorial starring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt will hit the screens on December 6.
