Bollywood is remarkably outstanding for two things, i.e. entertainment and plagiarism. While movies in Bollywood over the years have entertained and mesmerized the Indian masses, there have been cases where Bollywood has relentlessly copied concepts, story, songs and even the posters from Hollywood, Tollywood, Kollywood etc. In the name of inspiration, Bollywood has plagiarised the concept of other movies and there seems to be no end to it.
Here’s the list of some of the Bollywood movie posters copied from Hollywood or other film industries -
Ra-One, Batman Begins-
The poster of the most ambitious yet not much successful superhero project of Shah Rukh Khan was copied from another Hollywood superhero Flick Batman Begins, with a difference in costumes and the background color.
Bombay Velvet, Barsaat –
The Ranbir Kapoor Starrer Bombay Velvet had some similarity with his grandfather Raj Kapoor`s movie Barsaat. The similarity was in the first look of the movie which was similar to the movie Barsaat.
PK, Portuguese album Quim Barreiros –
The most controversial poster of nude Aamir Khan holding a radio set was a copy of the 1973 musical album Quim Barreiros in which Quim was seen holding an accordion covering his private part.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Lords of Dogtown-
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is probably one of the best movies of this decade with exquisite locations, memorable holiday destinations and of course excellent storyline. However, the main poster of the movie was actually copied from a Hollywood fiction Lords of Dogtown.
Kites, The Notebook –
The poster of the 2010 movie of Hrithik Roshan was also copied from one of the most romantic films of Hollywood “The Notebook”.
