AR Murugadoss has said that a still from Thuppakki has some resemblances with An Officer and a Gentleman. According to him, if we admire something, it sub-consciously finds a place in our work. However, the still had striking resemblances with 1982s Hollywood movie An Officer and a Gentleman directed by Taylor Hackford.
The poster of Richard Gere (wearing navy outfit) lifting Debra Winger (sporting his hat) in his arms, and Kajal resting in police-uniform clad Vijay were similar.
Thuppakki features Vijay, Kajal Aggarwal and Vidyut Jamwal in the leads. The movie is set in Mumbai, and Ilayathalapathy plays the role of a cop. The movie produced by Kalaipuli Dhanu will hit the screens on November 9.
