Minsara Kanna producer PL Thenappan: Makers of Parasite have stolen their plot from my film
South Korean film Parasite, directed by Boon Joon Ho, won four Academy Awards in the recently-concluded ceremony. The film transcended borders and appealed to people belonging to different backgrounds and countries. However, in Tamil Nadu, Parasite's director Boon Joon Ho is accused of plagiarism.
As soon as Parasite won four awards at the Oscars, many meme makers pointed out that the film's storyline is similar to Vijay's Minsara Kanna, which released in 1999. While many cine buffs laughed it off, Minsara Kanna's producer PL Thenappan is furious over the similarities of Minsara Kanna in Parasite.
