JK Moaning, the authoress, is tonight seeking legal advice, after the Indian government filed a lawsuit against her for plagiarising when reproducing the story behind the film Hari Puttar, the new Indian blockbuster.
Hari Puttar is a film which tells the story of a 10-year-old Indian boy who moves to Scotland with his family, and ends up having to save the world with Magic. The makers, Warning Bros of Bollywood, say there are many similarities with Rowling's stories, but Puttar predates Potter, and, therefore, Rowling must be a plagiarist.
'Hari' is a popular name in India, and 'Puttar' is a term for someone who makes things from clay.
Hari comes to Scotland, where he attends school at Hogwartings School of Pottery and Glazing, meeting several other Indian children there, and they decide to form a Secret Magicians Society.
Warning Bros executive Barry Trotter explained:
"Sure, there are some similarities, but Hari Puttar was already a project before that JK Rowling was born - it's just been a helluva long time in production!"
And screenplay writer Gary Rotter agreed, saying:
"Rowling copied our idea. It's the worst example of plagiarism I've seen in my 80 years in the Bollywood film industry."
