Peeved by the similarities between his film Naan Avanillai and Yash Raj Films' latest film Ladies vs Ricky Bahl, Tamil director Selva has dragged the producers to Court.

Claiming that the YRF film is a carbon copy of his film, Selva has accused the makers of lifting the Tamil story without taking rights nor giving credits to the original makers.

While Naan Avan Illai had Sneha, Malavika, Namitha, Keerthi Chawla and Jyothirmayi as heroines, its sequel had Lakshmi Rai, Hemamalini, Swetha Menon and Sangeetha as the con-man's ladies.

Besides dragging YRF to Court, Selva has also approached the Director's Association over the issue.

"I remade K Balachander's classic Naan Avan Illai (1974) by the same name in 2007. Without obtaining permission from us, Maneesh Sharma has made Ladies vs Ricky Bahl which has 75 per cent of the scenes from both the films," averred Selva.

The filmmaker said that he is shocked by this development, as Ladies vs Ricky Bahl was made by Yash Raj Films.
