R. Balki's directorial film on menstrual hygiene 'Pad Man' is winning hearts all over for its content and with Akshay's phenomenal performance, Pad Man is also going strong at the Box Office.

However, in a recent turn of events, writer Ripu Daman Jaiswal had accused filmmaker R. Balki of using his script in Pad Man. To which Balki stated to PTI "My film is an official biography of Muruganantham. Is he accusing Muruganantham of leading a life that has been copied from his writing? That's so silly".

Ripu has claimed that the makers of this Akshay Kumar - Radhika Apte starrer have copied 11 scenes from the script he had written.  "That's so foolish. After every film, some people foolishly make these claims", said Balki to PTI.

Ripu has also alleged that a dialogue in the film narrated by Amitabh Bachchan has been taken from his script that he had sent to Ryan Stephan, creative head of Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. "I remember I was in the library when I wrote this dialogue and was truly elated. Honestly, I surprised myself that day. Tell me, how on earth can you steal someone's dialogue? This is unfair", he tweeted.

Jaiswal had also filed a police complaint against the makers of the film. He tweeted:

When PTI had contacted Senior Police Inspector of Cuff Parade, Rashmi Jadhav, she stated, "There is one application received from Jaiswal, in which he has claimed copyright of his script. But no offense has been registered in this case."

Pad Man released on 9th February. The film has minted Rs 40 crores in its opening weekend.
