Actor Ayushmann Khurrana owned 2018 with two back-to-back hits, Andhadhun and
Badhaai Ho. The actor has several interesting projects lined up this year, including a film
titled Bala, about premature balding. However, even before work has commenced on the
film, the actor along with the producer Dinesh Vijan and director Amar Kaushik have landed
in legal trouble.
According to a report in Nav Bharat Times, Shaadi Mein Zaroor Aana assistant director
Kamal Kant Chandra filed a case in the Bombay High Court on Friday against the trio,
accusing them of lifting the idea from his project, Wig.
The report states that Kamal Kant, who assisted on films such as Daav Dev and Shaadi Mein
Zaroor Aana, has claimed meeting Ayushmann on the sets of his film Bareilly Ki Barfi.
Kamal told NBT that he had gone to meet actor Rajkummar Rao on the sets of Bareilly Ki
Barfi and got to meet Ayushmann as well. Kamal said that he shared his idea of a man
struggling with premature balding with Ayushmann on Whatsapp, who really liked it and
invited him to discuss it. Kamal alleges that while Ayushmann did not follow up with him at
all, the actor came up with a similar film idea after a few days.
Kamal added that he had sent a legal notice to all three -- Ayushmann, Dinesh and Amar but
did not get any response and therefore, went on to file a case against them.
