Furthermore, the Baazar actor also pointed out Bollywood’s tendency to copy ideas and characters from the West. He mentioned, “I don’t know, it’s like a society thing, we have a tendency to give the audience what we feel they want and again, these characters must have trickled down from the West… they must have been because we copy a lot”.

Instead, it was a copy of James Dearden’s 1991 directorial A Kiss Before Dying starring Matt Dillon and Sean Young in the lead. “It’s a Western film about a guy who starts bumping of the girls in the family he wants to take,” he added.
