'Jodi Breakers' is not a copy of 'Heart Breakers': Madhavan

Added by harini on Jan 21, 2012

‘Jodi Breakers’ movie, starring Madhavan and Bipasha Basu, has become embroiled in a plagiarism controversy. The Indian distributors of the Belgian film ‘Heartbreakers’ have claimed that ‘Jodi Breakers’ may be a copy of their film and have raised questions over its originality.

“Let them read our script and point out even one similarity. I challenge them to prove we've copied even a frame,” said the lead actor of the movie Madhavan to a daily.

The makers of ‘Jodi Breakers’ have infact offered the team of ‘Heart Breakers’ to show them the movie, as along as they are willing to sign ‘Non Disclosure Agreement’ (NDA). But apparently, the team of ‘Heart Breakers’ is refusing to sign NDA.

“We've repeatedly asked them to sign an NDA and read our script. Why aren't they accepting our invitation? If they find even a page similar, we'll do whatever is required. The fact of the matter is, there're no similarities between our film and theirs except the similar-sounding title. Maybe they know it too. Why is it that every time a film's promos start, we have such allegations popping up?” he asked.

The movie ‘Jodi Breakers’ is a romantic comedy and is directed by Ashwini Chaudhary and produced by Prasar Vision Pvt, Ltd.

Other than R Madhavan and Bipasha Basu in main leads, the movie also features Omi Vaidya, Milind Soman, Dipanita Sharma, Mrinalini Sharma and Helen.

The movie is slated for February 24, 2012 release.
