Remember Prabhas' 2011 movie Mr. Perfect? The 37-year-old actor's movie appears to be in trouble recently after the makers have reportedly been accused of plagiarism for the film's story. A novelist titled Shyamala Rani has alleged that the story line of the movie Mr Perfect is based on her novel titled Na Manasu Korindi Ninne and that certain scenes and the overall tone of the film also coincides with her writing, reported Gulte.com. Following the allegations, a complaint against producer Dil Raju (who is also known as Venkataramana Reddy) has been booked with the Madhapur police on Saturday, stated the report. Apart from Dil Raju, dialogue writer Abburi Raviand, the director of the movie Dasaradh Kondapalli and co-producers Sirish and Lakshman have also reportedly been booked in the case.

Shyamala Rani claimed that her novel Namanasu Korindi Ninne was written in 2008 and was later published by Sahithi Publications in 2010, stated a Times Of India report. "While I was watching Mr Perfect in 2013 on television, I found several dialogues and scenes were copied from my novel," the police quoted Shyamala Rani as saying, stated the report.

Mr Perfect, a romantic comedy, featured actors like Prabhas, Kajal Aggarwal and Taapsee Pannu in key roles. The cast of Mr Perfect, also includes names like Nassar, Murali Mohan, Viswanath Kasinadhuni, Sayaji Shinde and Prakash Raj.
