‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ poster is inspired from a Hollywood film

Do you see what we see! Movie buffs eagerly wait for the first look of a film and when the first poster of Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was out people couldn’t stop raving about Hrithik Roshan’s hot body and the way the poster looked, but there’s hardly any originality in the poster.
The poster is apparently inspired from the 2005 Hollywood flick Lords of Dogtown. What a let-down considering that the film is made under the banner of Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainments and is directed by Zoya Akhtar.
Presumably, the similarities end at the posters only as the storyline of ZNMD seems to be different from the ‘Lords of Dogtown', which is also about three friends. But the main theme of both the films is love for adventure.
Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara is shot in Spain and in some parts of Europe. Earlier people even thought that it’s a sequel to Dil Chahta Hai, but ZNMD is a road flick. Katrina Kaif and Kalki Koechlin are the female leads of the film which has everything from bull-fighting to mud bike racing.
The case of poster rip-off is not new in the industry. It can be recalled that the makers of Anjaana Anjaani had to withdraw the first poster of the film as it was a direct lift from the Oscar nominated 2009 film An Education.
