What was the controversy around Mohanlal starrer Neru ahead of its release?

Neru directed by Jeethu Joseph and featuring Mohanlal as the main lead was embroiled in a controversy regarding plagiarism. A writer named Deepu K Unni had moved the court seeking a stay on film’s release alleging that the script for the movie was plagiarised from a screenplay that he had written.

Director Jeethu Joseph addressed the claims on his Facebook handle, stating, "Neru has been crafted with utmost sincerity and enthusiasm." He further added, "A person has claimed rights to the story of Neru and has taken the matter to court. The synopsis of the person's claim, along with case files, has been circulating on social media. I urge the audience to discern the truth after watching the film in theatres tomorrow. - Jeethu Joseph." However, the Kerala High Court refused to stay the release of the Mohanlal-starrer Neru and it was released in theatres as planned.
