Deva Katta vs producer: Fight over NTR biopic
Deva Katta has accused producer Vishnu Vardhan Induri of 'NTR' biopic fame of stealing an idea of his. The 'Prasthanam' director claimed that he and the producer had discussions about the NTR biopic discussions in December 2015. In a series of tweets, the 'Prasthanam' director suggested that it was a stolen idea.
Reacting to the accusation, Induri took to Twitter and presented his case. "I would like to clear it once and for all. I met Deva Katta for a remake I selected in December 2015 and also narrated the idea of NTR biopic to him with the basic screenplay. He liked my idea of NTR and I would like to clear it all that he never narrated anything to me about NTR biopic," Induri tweeted.
At this, Deva Katta came out strongly and replied, "My dear friend, I think you forgot there was also a witness when I pitched the biopic idea to you in our first meeting itself in 2015!! There are many more in the industry to speak for your lies, so take it easy don’t try too hard!!"
Induri then reaffirmed that Katta never narrated a single scene to him. "I do remember we just had only one meeting about working on a remake film. It's me who narrated the NTR biopic Idea to you in that meeting. I am very clear that you haven't narrated even a single scene to me but I narrated over 40 scenes to you in that meeting," Induri said.
