Rajinikanth's Kabali is slated to hit the screens soon. And fans of the Thalaiva have taken to social media to share fan-made posters of the film.
One of these posters, a rip-off of Irrfan Khan's Madaari, has courted controversy. In a recent interview, Irrfan Khan took a dig at the makers of Kabali, alleging that they had plagiarised the poster.
The national award-winning actor shrugged it off and encouraged viewers to watch both films. He said:
"Kabali is a big film, Rajinikanth Sir's film. We are small filmmakers, I saw that Rajinikanthji Sir's film stole the poster of our film. You see his film's poster and see our film's poster. No big deal about it. Watch his film and watch our film, too."
However, it appears as though Kalaipuli S Thanu, who is bankrolling the Pa Ranjith film, has not taken Irrfan's remarks lightly.
He took to Twitter to confirm that the poster was indeed, made by a fan. He also slammed Irrfan Khan for his comments, asking him to get his facts right before making allegations.
