The first look promo of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's highly anticipated
Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Bachchan starrer film
Guzaarish was unveiled last week. While the promo is quite
splendid to say the least, the film does bear some resemblance to a
2004 Spanish film called The Sea Inside which is based on
a true story of a sailor Ramdon Sampredo who becomes a quadriplegic
following an accident. In Guzaarish, the buzz is that Hrithik, who
plays a magician, ends up in a wheelchair because of an accident
that happens when a magic trick goes wrong.
Bhansali's earlier films such as Black was also
inspired from The Miracle Worker while Saawariya was
loosely based on a Russian short story 'White Nights'.
While neither Bhansali nor his lead actors were in any mood to
reveal even a bit about the story of Guzaarish at the
launch event, going by the promos of the two films, there is no
denying that there is some similarity between Guzaarish and The
