It was rumoured that Ek Villain has been copied from Korean movie I Saw The Devil but the director of the former rejected the buzz, however admitted that he has picked up one dialogue from the Korean hit.
"That's just one dialogue that I have taken from the Korean film's promo, just like I took another from the film Jack Reacher. The two stories are not similar as the characters come from two completely different worlds. I don't get the confusion around it. I don't know why people are calling me to clarify," asserted rather miffed Mohit.
"I wasn't born with dialogues in my head and I have been inspired by the films I have watched and the books I have read," the Ek Villain director added.
The buzz of Ek Villain being copied from Korean film I Saw The Devil gained momentum after the launch of the film's trailer which reportedly had some similarities with the Korean film.
Well, the film Ek Villain starring Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor is scheduled to release on June 27th and only then we will come to know whether it's a copy or an original one.
