Last week, Times of India reported that producer Manikam Narayanan filed a complaint at the TFPC allegedly claiming that the stories of Jawan and Perarasu are the same. While the filmmaker claims that he allegedly owns the rights of the story, the TFPC has agreed for an investigation but will be pursuing it only after November 7, as per these reports.

Talking about the film Perarasu, the 2006 action crime film featured Vijayakanth in a dual role and revolved around the mission of a CBI officer is entrusted with a mission to investigate the case of a judge’s mysterious disappearance. While rumours have it that Shah Rukh Khan will be seen in a dual role in the film, the makers of Jawan are yet to spill the beans about the film.

Jawan is expected to be a film to be helmed on a large scale. The film will be shot across different locations in India including Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad and Chennai. Besides Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi, the film also features many other celebs from the South and Bollywood industry including Priyamani, Yogi Babu, Sunil Grover and Sanya Malhotra. A glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan’s action-packed avatar was released earlier this year and the film is still in the shooting stage.
