Ayushmann Khurrana in legal trouble, accused of stealing Kamal Kant’s idea for Bala

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.
