Bollywood movie posters and their Hollywood ‘inspirations’

Quite a few Bollywood films in the past have drawn 'inspiration' from their Hollywood counterparts. Some of the films in the list include Shah Rukh Khan's Ra.One, Priyanka Chopra's Aitraaz and Akshay Kumar starrer Rowdy Rathore.

Entertainment industries often inspire each other, and there are tons of remakes to prove that statement. However, there is a thin line between direct imitation and inspiration. After Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer Judgementall Hai Kya raked up controversy recently for allegedly copying an artist's work for their posters, we decided to look back at some of the times our artists have seemingly been 'influenced' by their western counterparts. Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan's superhero flick Ra.One's poster seems to have drawn inspiration from Christopher Nolan film Batman Begins.

Kangana Ranaut's soon-to-be-released Dhaakad's poster bears a striking resemblance to the poster of Alicia Vikander starrer Tomb Raider.

Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha's Rowdy Rathore's poster looks familiar. Have you watched Mira Sorvino-Chow Yun-fat film The Replacement Killers?
