Controversies do not seem to be leaving Hrithik’s Kaabil’s hands and have stuck like a magnet to it. It is already facing an ugly clash with SRK starrer Raees, as they both are scheduled to be released on 25th January. According to some media reports, it was being alleged that Netflix is planning to sue Kaabil for vigorously copying the scenes, plot and color scheme of Netflix’s Daredevils.
However, when a leading newspaper Indian Express contacted the American entertainment production company, Netflix, for the confirmation, they denied such reports. ” Netflix has no record of such a plan and we are checking into the source of this rumour”. They did found some glaring similarities with Kaabil’s trailer and Daredevil but no official statement or decision has been planned to sue Kaabil.
Director of Kaabil, Sanjay Gupta told his side of view to matter, ” “It’s a preposterous comparison because Hrithik (Roshan) is not a superhero in Kaabil. His character is a blind man who does what he does best. In Daredevil, the protagonist fights 30 people at the same time. None of that is happening in Kaabil. If they sue us, we will definitely fight back.”
