Imitation is the best form of flattery but history has taught us that the desi version of a Hollywood production never matches up to the original. And we have examples too.
Earlier we have learnt that Ragini MMS 2 number Baby Doll from Ekta Kapoor's film were inspired by J Lo's Dance Again. Now, it seems that Balaji Films has stepped up its 'inspiration' game with Ek Villain.
The poster of their latest film, featuring Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra, bears a striking resemblance to the poster of the 2006 dance drama Step Up.
The makers of the film tries to explain that Shraddha's damsel-in-distress look and Siddharth's protective demeanour, is a "standard intense romantic pose" and any resemblance to the poster of the Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan starrer was "purely coincidental." Now, haven't we heard that before?
So, what do you think? Is Bollywood really borrowing heavily from Hollywood?
