Sonkar has submitted a copy of his novel along with the complaint, police said, adding a case has been registered against the celebrated filmmaker.

He said the 2013 film also has a creature combining the attributes of man and animal and claimed Roshan used his story without obtaining his permission. When reached for comments, Roshan texted a message, saying "The matter is sub-judice. I cannot comment."[3]

The police said the matter will be investigated and, if accusations are found to be true, further action will be taken.[4]
