Mumbai: ‘Baaghi 2’ trailer released a few days back and the movie has already faced trouble, as it has been claimed to be a remake of the Telugu movie ‘Kshanam’. The basic plots in both the movies are the same; it being that heroine sends a distress call to hero to rescue her kidnapped daughter.

Director of ‘Kshanam’, Ravikanth Perepu, told Mid-Day that he wished "The source material is the same. I hope they credit us in the film at least. They should do so for the sake of the writers."

"I have a neutral stance on the issue at this moment. The film released two years ago. The makers of ‘Baaghi 2’ had purchased the official rights of the film. But giving the writers [of Kshanam] credit is essential, especially since their movie is being made on a national scale," Perepu said.

"If the makers of ‘Baaghi 2’ release another trailer which includes the credits, the matter should be resolved. While there's no scope of a legal implication, relations may needlessly be strained. Kshanam's production house has already put in a word to the producer of ‘Baaghi 2’," a source told Mid-Day.

However, even though the basic plotline is the same, there appears to be not much similarity in the setting, tone or execution.

‘Baaghi 2’ appears to be more commercialized as compared to ‘Kshanam’, where the actor Adivi Sesh used his instincts and intellect to get to the bottom of the mystery.
