Both Vyas and his lawyers have said that the movie seemed to have copied the plot from his short film called Manini. Talking about the film to the media, he said that he has sent a notice to the producers after he saw the trailer which has a striking resemblance to his short film. And in many ways, it has good amount of similarities. However, the makers of the film have denied about the allegation.

They have replied saying that nothing really has been copied from any such film and the ideas projected in the movie is the original work of the company, which will be deemed to be admitted by a number of reasons of being non-traverse. The makers are now in the process of collating the data for their clients in order to reply to the said notice against the said allegation.
