Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar says Hollywood actor Jesse Eisenberg’s role of villain Lex Luthor in the superhero film “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” looks similar to what Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan played in his classic films “Darr” and “Baazigar”.
Luthor is a sophisticated young businessman and hereditary CEO of LexCorp who is fixated on defeating his archenemy Superman.
According to Nambiar, the role seems quite similar to the grey shade characters that Shah Rukh played in “Darr” and “Baazigar”.
“Did anyone else think Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor was Shah Rukh from ‘Darr’ and ‘Baazigar’,” Nambiar, best known for directing films like “Shaitan”, “David” and “Wazir”, posted on Twitter on Thursday. Read review of Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice
