‘If you steal my work, at least do it properly?’: French director accused ‘Saaho’ director
‘Saaho‘ starring Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor has received roaring box office response within three days of its release. As far as box office collection is concerned the film has left behind ‘Mission Mangal’ and ‘Batla House’ . After watching ‘Saaho’ several fans tweeted to filmmaker Jerome Salle, pointing out the similarities between ‘Saaho’ and ‘Largo Winch’ now the director reacted to the allegations on social media.
The French director Jerome Salle wrote, “I think I have a promising career in India”, to a user who tweeted, ”@Jerome_Salle Buddy another day and another free make of your Largo winch movie in India #Saaho. you are the real Guruji __/\__”. Salle further continued, ”“It seems this second “freemake” of Largo Winch is as bad as the first one. So please Telugu directors, if you steal my work, at least do it properly? And as my ‘Indian career’ tweet was of course ironic, I’m sorry but I’m not gonna be able to help.”
This is not the first time Jerome Salle has accused a Telugu filmmaker for copying his work. Last year, when Trivikram Srinivas’s ‘Agnyaathavasi’, the filmmaker had raised concerns over similar plot.
