RGV unfazed by Officer script leak

A writer, who alleges that RGV plagiarised his story for the film, released a 23-page script online 

Published: 19th May 2018

Writer P Jaya Kumar has alleged that director Ram Gopal Varma has plagiarised his script for his upcoming film Officer, starring Nagarjuna. The 27-year-old writer has accused RGV of intellectual theft and released the 23-page bound script, which he claims he penned in 2015, across social media.

“I conceptulised the story of Officer which revolves around a police officer from Hyderabad appointed as the chief of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) constituted by the Mumbai High Court to investigate fake encounters, corruption and racketeering allegations on a top cop. But after watching the teaser and trailer of RGV’s film, I’ve realised that the director has stolen my script without giving me any credit. So, I have put out my script for public consumption,” he said.

When we reached out to RGV for comment, the director said, “This is not the first time that he (Jaya Kumar) is making such allegations. Whenever a film of mine is due for release, he tries to create some issue out of nothing. I’m in no mood to respond to such stuff and I don’t want to talk about all that now. Let’s leave it.”

Further, the Sarkar director went on to reveal the inspiration behind making Officer on Twitter.

Also featuring Myra Sareen, Feroz Abbasi, Sayaji Shinde and Ajay in pivotal roles, Officer is slated for release on June 1.
