Uday Singh Rajput, a resident of Sagar district in Madhya Pradesh has claimed that he has originally written the script of Krrish 3. The writer has apparently pressed plagiarism charges on the maker Rakesh Roshan and has demanded a whopping Rs. 2 crore as compensation.

Also, the writer has moved to the Bombay High Court demanding a stay on the release of the film this Friday if his demands are not being fulfilled. While the hearing of both the parties has been scheduled today, Justice S J Kathawala revealed that the title 'Krrish 2' has been registered with the Film Writers Association on July 23, 2008.

The complainant also claimed that the same script was used by the Roshans under a different title Krrish 3. On the opposition front, Rakesh Roshan who is miffed with the allegations has issued a warning in High Court claiming that no funds must be granted to the writer until the details of the case has been discussed in court. Roshan also revealed that the script was written by Robin Bhatt and has been registered since March 3, 2011.

Krrish 3 starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra and Kangna Ranaut is slated to release on November 1.
