MUMBAI: Just a day ago, Shia community had revolted against a specific clip shot in the trailer of Raees. Sanjay Gupta's Kaabil is towered with legal troubles and traumas.
The American entertainment production company Netflix is on its verge to sue the maker of Kaabil for plagiarism. Netflix finds scorching similarities reflecting between the promos of Kaabil and its production Daredevil.
Three needle points of parallelism have been underlined by Netflix as of today. Primarily, the protagonists of both the productions are depicted to be blind. Furthermore, the choreography for the action sequel in the promos of Kaabil has been stolen from Daredevil. Lastly, the colour scheme of the two productions complements with each other.
But Sanjay Gupta, the film maker of Kaabil has refuted all the allegations of Netflix.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Gupta stated: "It's a preposterous comparison because Hrithik Roshan is not a superhero in Kaabil. Hrithik is playing a blind man whereas in Daredevil, the protagonist brawls 30 men at a go.The two movies are nowhere similar and are technically dissimilarities to each other he said.
The Indian Express reports that a spokesperson from Netflix has later clarified that they do not intend to sue Kaabil that is just a grapevine which had spread like the fire.
As a matter of coincidence, Shah Rukh Khan and the maker of Raees has recently entered into a three-year deal with Netflix in which the films produced under his banner Red Chillies Entertainment will be open for viewing by universal subscribers.
Sanjay Gupta's Pictures Are Actually Pumped with Plagiarism & Piracy:
To be frank, Gupta has always been peeping and popping over the overseas stellar scripts.
His action ensemble movie Kaante was cribbed from American filmmaker Quentin Tarantino's crime thriller Reservoir Dogs.
His directorial Zinda was the copy cat of the Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook's mystery thriller Oldboy.
His film Jazbaa was the ditto remake of South Korean film made by Won Shin-yun’s crime thriller Seven Days.
