Three heroines, one hero! Two films which focus on the love life of
the lead male protagonist, from teenage to maturity! Striking
similarities, to a 70s classic isn't it?
No wonder Ranbir Kapoor's upcoming Independence Day release,
Bachna Ae Haseeno, also starring Bipasha Basu, Minissha
Lamba and Deepika Padukone, is being compared to his grandfather,
Raj Kapoor's evergreen classic, Mera Naam Joker!
So, how does Ranbir feel about the comparison? Well, surprise,
surprise! Ranbir reacted quite strongly to the allegations of
inspiration and said that he was quite hurt that the two films are
being brought on the same platform. Ranbir elaborates his point of
view and says that he cannot dream of comparing both the films.
While his grandfather's film was a classic, a sort of an
autobiography, his film is simply a romantic, fun filled
entertainer. No deep emotions or feelings are associated with
Bah (unlike Mera Naam Joker), which simply talks
about the phases in the love life of a common man, from the first
crush, to a mere attraction and mature love.
Ranbir we believe you and hope for a full time pass entertainer,
much like Bah director Siddharth Anand's Salaam
