‘Pirate Vs Pirated’ Twitterati can’t hold back ‘memeic’ comparisons between Thugs Of Hindostan and Pirates of The Caribbean

New Delhi:

The production designer has, however, strongly denied using the Hollywood film’s reference. He went so far as to say that he hadn’t even seen the movie.

Speaking to Times Now, Sumit Basu said, “It never came to our mind. Our life was much simpler, we know the period, we know the ships. We are talking about Andalusia, we know those ships and people know there are replicas of those ships floating in the water. So... I never take reference from films.”

Film’s protagonist Aamir too denied of any resemblance. He pointed that there were some hundreds of action adventure films, Pirates of The Caribbean, Indiana Jones, are to name a few. “So the genre of our film is action adventure but the story is different. Even my character in the film is not similar to any other character,” the PK star said in a 2017 talk show.

But the Twitterati jury thinks otherwise. Ever since the first trailer of the film dropped, netizens could not stop comparing both the movies. An overwhelming response from the cybernauts point towards t he film’s similarity to the Pirates movies.

Here’s what the Twitterati is writing:

The Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial venture, Thugs Of Hindostan, also starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh is slated to hit the theatres on November 8. The movie will be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
