Be it Munna Bhai, Dabangg or Student of the Year, Bollywood franchises are appreciated by critics and fans world over. One of the most highly-anticipated films of 2020 has been Baaghi 3, starring Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles. While the previous two installments became blockbuster hits, there were high expectations from Sajid Nadiadwala’s third attempt too. However, the recently released trailer of the film has already caught the eye of netizens, with many trolling the movie for bearing similarities with Hollywood action film Wonder Woman. Social media has been abuzz with memes, with many trollers taking evident digs at the cast and crew too.
While many have dished out rib-tickling jokes, others have pointed out that the project defies all logic and science. This is not the first time Bollywood has been accused of plagiarizing Hollywood content.
The Baaghi 3 trailer has been viewed almost 50 million times in 24 hours. However, Tiger is being slammed for one major scene where he can be seen stopping the bullets and beating the enemies with the help of a shield. According to netizens, this particular shot is a blatant copy of Gal Gadot’s stint in Wonder Woman. The following posted uploaded by a user on Twitter shows exactly what Tiger is being condemned for. It features a collage of Tiger and Gal’s stints in their respective films. Becoming the butt of all jokes, the user captioned the post, “#Baaghi3: Sis, Can I copy your homework. #WonderWoman: Sure, but change the gender.”
Others however cannot wait for the release of the film and Tiger’s fans have already been requesting for advanced bookings at cinema halls. The filmmakers have gone all out with Baaghi 3. So much so that Abhishek Bachchan’s popular hit Dus Bahane from his 2005 film Dus, has been recreated. Tiger shared the first look of Dus Bahane 2.0 on his social media handles on Tuesday that features him with Shraddha. "These baaghis are badass and so is their party jam. #DusBahane 2.0 coming soon," he captioned his post. Well, let’s wait for the film to release before passing judgements too soon. Maybe the final product changes the minds of netizens or maybe not… let’s wait and watch!
