Oh yes! We say so coz the poster of his latest film The Xpose is pretty similar to that of Leo’s The Great Gatsby. Bollywood’s rip-off obsession continues, hai na?
The poster of Himesh Reshammiya and Yo Yo Honey Singh starrer The Xpose has uncanny resemblance to The Great Gatsby poster which starred Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead. In such cases industrywallas like to use the word ‘inspired’ but wethinks the makers of Himesh’s film have blatantly lifted the poster idea from their Hollywood counterpart. Check out the picture and even you’ll agree with us. Let’s hope the singer-actor hasn’t copied Leo’s style in his film coz that would be a bigger disaster, hai na? Frankly speaking, we aren’t surprised as many Bollywood films in the past have walked down the ‘inspiration lane’ and copied posters from the West. Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, The Lunchbox, Murder 3, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and John Day are few of the movies whose posters weren’t original…at all!
All we can say is – the aam jaanta knows the definition of inspiration very well. So stop ullu banaving, right Bollywoodlifers?
