As one of the most promising actors in the field, Kangana Ranaut’s movies are cinephile’s candy. As such, when the Dhaakad’s poster was released today as promised, fans were over the moon to once again see the talented actress in a badass avatar. While many appreciates the first look, some fans were also quick to notice the uncanny similarity between Kananga’s poster and Alicia Vikander’s Tomb Raider.
Movies are made, remade, given a different twist, made into sequels, prequels over the years which mean that a chipping-in of ideas always take place at one point or the other. We have infact even seen Hollywood draw clear inspiration from Bollywood movies like ‘Vicky Donor, ‘Jab we Met’, ‘Darr’, just to name a few. The point being, in the world of movies just as is any other field, ideas are either inspired or enlightened by something or the other as could be the case with Kangana Ranaut’s Dhaakad’s poster. Hence, without further ado, let us look at some other Bollywood movies which may have been copied or inspired by Hollywood or other film industries not Indian:
Shah Rukh Khan’s 2011 Ra.One (2011) poster looks eerily similar to that of Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins (2005).
Aamir Khan’s hit Ghajini (2008) poster and Edward Norton’s The Incredible Hulk (2008).
Finished The Incredible Hulk. It's a shame that Edward Norton was replaced. 2008's Hulk is the best Live-Action iteration of the Hulk by far. The story was fantastic, the action was serviceable, and the CG for the Hulk.....good lord. PERFECT. Only complaint -- too much down time. pic.twitter.com/Hvyle0Izck— AESGaming (@gaming_aes) April 10, 2019

S.S Rajamouli’s superhit Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) poster and Mark Johnson’s Simon Birch (1998).
Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero (2018) poster clearly looks like an adaptation of the French movie Un Homme À La Hauteur (2016).
