Vijay has always insisted on doing the right thing irrespective of what the issue is. He has insisted this in his stage speeches too. In the Sarkar story theft issue to he has shown that he will always stand for truth. This is indeed a great thing since there is a lot riding on Sarkar. Sarkar is Vijay’s big Diwali release directed by A. R Murugadoss. As always the film ran into troubled waters when assistant director Varun Rajendran accused Murugadoss of plagiarism. And Bhagyaraj as a senior in the industry and head of South Indian writer’s association was on the side of Varun and insisted that due credits should be given to Varun for the core plot of the story.
After a back and forth battle the matter was taken to court. But Bhagyaraj was constantly abused on social media along with his son Shantanu. But Bhagyaraj was staunch in his stand and now Murugadoss has agreed to put a note of appreciation as a recognition of Varun’s effort in developing a core plot. Bhagyaraj had said that he had reached out to Vijay regarding the issue and Vijay has graciously asked him to do what is right.
These words by Vijay are huge as it shows that the star really lives by his words, Hopefully, this will also stop the stealing of creativity from now on.
