Major Ravi’s upcoming film mired in controversy

The four — Jis Joy, Renju Nair, Sen Davue and Banerji S Pillai — have alleged that the director's upcoming tale of bravado is their brain child. "We found out that the story line of Major Ravi's upcoming flick has an uncanny resemblance to the concept of our story. In fact, we have been working on the concept for the last three years. When the final draft was ready, we registered it in our name," says Jis.
Both stories have two commandos of different countries as the central characters and talk of their emotional bonding, but director Major Ravi denies that the plot has been copied or even inspired from the techies. "I don't know who they are or what their story is. It is after all a thread, and anyone could think and write such a plot. Moreover, I completed the script months back and has registered it with the notary to avoid legal hassles," says the director.
Major Ravi also adds that his story is based on the real life experiences he had while with the army in Kashmir. "How do they know what I am planning to etch out from the thread? Whatever allegations that have been made are completely baseless," he said.
Incidentally, at first, the techies had planned to rope in Major Ravi to helm their army based plot, but later decided to approach director Joshiy. Says Jis, "We contacted Major Ravi to direct the project once, but since he was busy, we couldn't discuss the subject then. We are not accusing anyone, but still don't have a clue how it happened." Jis also adds that they are planning to move on with the project in the immediate future. "Talks are on with the makers, and we are planning to rope in Prithviraj in the lead."
