While AR Murugadoss hasn’t offered any explanation about the plagiarism accusations slapped on him by filmmaker Minjur Gopi, a video ridiculing Gopi was sent to the media on Saturday. The video, which was a compilation of Gopi’s interview to various mediahouses, featured funny dialogues that mocked Gopi.
As the video was emailed by AR Murugadoss’s publicist and the email ID carried the director’s name, it was believed to be ARM’s method of handling the issue by reducing the severity. However, Murugadoss’s publicist confirmed that the video was not sent by AR Murugadoss. “The director doesn’t have anything to do with that video. I shared what I received.”
In an interview to The Hindu, Gopi said, “I have taken this issue to the court. I’m frustrated now as Murugadoss hasn’t tried to approach me yet. I have now lost trust.”
