As per reports, a writer Ripu Daman Jaiswal took to Facebook in December last year after he saw the trailer of Pad Man and accused the makers of copying the dialogues and plot points from the script he has written in 2016 and shared with Karan Johar's Dharma Productions creative head Ryan Stephan and Vikram Aditya Motwane.
