Copying Hollywood stories is something very common in Bollywood. Even posters are not spared these days! A lot of Bollywood films are copied from famous Hollywood movie posters.
Apart from copying posters and story line, some Bollywood movies have characters which are either copied form Hollywood or real life personalities. For example, biopics are trending in Bollywood. With Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Mary Kom, some Bollywood movie characters are inspired from the real life personalities. For example, Farhan Akhtar looked like Milkha Singh in the biopic. Similarly, Priyanka Chopra is going to look like boxer Mary Kom in her next movie.
One of the recent movie characters based on a real life personality is played by Sonakshi Sinha. In her upcoming movie, Holiday, Sonakshi is playing the role of a boxer and her look is similar to boxing legend Muhammad Ali's daughter, Laila. Sonakshi is playing the role of a young boxer and is also donning cornrows.
Some of the actors have also got inspired from their contemporaries. For example, Rani Mukerji revived the famous Mr India's Sridevi song I Love You by wearing a plain sky blue saree in Aiyyaa. Similarly, Tamannah in the remake of hit film, Himmatwala donned a ditto look of Sridevi.
