While there’s ample buzz around Agnyaathavaasi, there’s also anticipation to see if the film, as is the rumour, is inspired from 2009 French film Largo Winch. T-Series that holds the remake rights of the film has already sent a notice to the film’s makers. And now, the latest is that the director of the original has expressed his curiousity to see the film.
Jérôme Salle, who helmed the original, heard about the plagiarism controversy surrounding the film and took to social media to express his interest in watching the film. “I think I'm gonna buy a ticket (plane first, then movie) #Curiosity #Agnyaathavaasi #Largo-Winch (sic),” he tweeted.
After the promos of Agnyaathavaasi were released, similarities with the French film were pointed out by many. The makers haven’t commented so far.
