Were Naseeruddin Shah and Randeep Hooda conned?

The two actors certainly think the director of their action thriller film John Day has taken them for a ride

Naseeruddin Shah and Randeep Hooda won’t be promoting their upcoming film John Day ‘coz the film seems to have been lifted from  2002 Spanish thriller, Box 507. In fact, the two lead actors were unaware about this fact till the trailers of their film were released recently. Apparently, a filmmaker after watching the trailer, told Hooda about the uncanny resemblance between his film and the Spanish one. And the John Day actor was taken aback. Randeep then informed his producer about the same and the two confronted director Ahishor Solomon. We hear Ahislor in his defense said that John Day was loosely inspired from Box 507. In that case, wethinks he shouldn’t have kept this fact under the wraps all along, no?

As of now, veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah and Randeep Hooda have decided to not promote their film as they felt cheated by the director.
