A writer from Madhya Pradesh today moved the Bombay High Court alleging copyright violation of the script of Hrithik Roshan-starrer Krrish-3 and seeking a stay on the all India release of the film this Friday unless he was given a compensation of Rs two crore.

Uday Singh Rajput, a resident of Sagar district in Madhya Pradesh, filed a petition claiming he had written the script titled 'Krrish-2' which was a sequel to Krrish part 1.

However, he said he was being denied the credit for writing the story.

Rakesh Roshan, producer of Krrish-3, has also filed a caveat in the High Court urging that no relief should be granted to Uday Singh Rajput unless he (Roshan) is heard in the matter.

Both the applications would be heard tomorrow by Justice S J Kathawala.

Rajput claimed he had registered his script titled Krrish-2 with the Film Writers Association on July 23, 2008.

Thereafter, he met Roshan and gave him the script. Roshan promised to pay him if the script was used.

However, instead of paying him, Roshan used the same script to make a sequel to Krrish and gave the title as Krrish-3 instead of Krrish-2, Rajput alleged.

The petitioner further alleged Roshan had advertised in electronic media that he himself was the story writer of Krrish-3, although before the court in his application Roshan has stated that the story was written by Rubin Bhatt and the script was registered on March 3, 2011.

Rajput claimed his script had been used by Roshan to make the film Krrish-3 which was being released on November 1 and sought a stay on its release until the matter was decided and a compensation of Rs two crore paid to him.
