Roop Narayan Sonkar has alleged that Roshan stole the story from his novel ‘Suardan’. He has submitted a copy of his novel along with the complaint. A case has been registered against Roshan.

The novelist claimed he published Suardan in 2010 in which he had envisioned a creature combining ‘manav’ (man) and ‘janwar’ (animal) and named it ‘Manwar’. He said the 2013 film also has a creature combining the attributes of man and animal and claimed Roshan used his story without obtaining his permission.

When reached for comments, Roshan texted a message, saying, “The matter is sub-judice. I cannot comment.”
