Sivakarthikeyan's vigilante thriller Hero has been taken down from the OTT media platform Amazon Prime Video based on plagiarism allegations of an aspiring director named Bosco Prabhu.

Bosco, an assistant director of Atlee, had accused Hero's director PS Mithran of plagiarising his story to make the film in December. Though the writers union spoke in favour of Bosco after comparing the synopsis of the two stories, Mithran remained firm in his stand and refused to give any monetary compensation, saying that he and his co-writers Pon Parthiban, Savari Muthu, and Antony Bhagyaraj wrote the story based on real-life incidents from newspapers and he had proper evidence to prove that their work was authentic. 

When asked about the current issue, a source close to the makers of Hero assures that the issue is being sorted out currently and the film can be expected to be back online soon.

Hero, co-starring Kalyani Priyadarshan, Arjun and Abhay Deol, has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja and cinematography by George C Williams.
