The Enthiran controversy:
When the film released in October 2010 and went on to became a blockbuster at the Box Office, a plagiarism issue cropped up. The writer claimed that director Shankar garnered major profits by allegedly stealing his story idea which is legally counted as a violation of the Copyright Act of 1957. The case has been going on for a few years.

Tamilnadan had published his story again in 2007 in a book titled Dhik Dhik Deepika Dheepika.
