Plagiarism in Bollywood: Two Indian Celebrities under fire

Both Bollywood celebrities have accused of copying posters and advertisements from Hollywood films.

The film industry around the world has always been open to various types of scripts and stories. So, plagiarism has heavily criticized everywhere, both in Bollywood and Hollywood. Audiences are also becoming smarter and need new, interesting content in all parts of the world.

This arises from a recent dispute affecting Bollywood celebrities Tiger Shroff and Deepika Padukone. A few days ago, Shroff had shared a poster for his upcoming movie, Heropanti 2, which irked many people because of its uncanny resemblance to the poster of the 2007 action thriller Hitman.

Despite the blaming of plagiarism for Heropanti Series 1 in 2014, media reported that a second poster has also borrowed from the same game franchise. Evidently Shroff can be seen in an outfit similar to that used by Agent 47 in the Hitman games and movies: a black suit, a bright red tie, and two pistols in each hand.

“Hitman? Why? One user further questioning the Heropanti 2 poster. Another user added, John Wick lite.”

In other news, the Padukone has also criticized for a similar advertisement made by Sooni Taraporevala in 2020, media reported. The ad, starring the Bollywood diva, was alleged to be intellectual theft and the director of the original ad was dissatisfied with the crew due to lack of recognition.
