How often will you see a director admitting that he stole something
from other's work? Well, AR Murugadoss stands different from
others, as he has said that one of the posters of his upcoming
Thuppakki is inspired by English film
An Officer and a Gentleman.
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.
