The makers of Jalebi released the first poster of the film online yesterday. Rhea Chakraborty was seen hanging out of a train window to kiss debutante Varun Mitra. Along with the poster, producer Mahesh Bhatt wrote: "In this changing shifting world where the old stories have collapsed and no new story has yet emerged to replace them, comes a story of everlasting love. Here is the #Jalebiposter (sic)."

The poster was indeed good looking, but there was something that kept ticking the minds of fans. Soon enough, they realised that the pic was a copy (or as they say, inspired) of an iconic Korean War photo. Have a look:

Talking of the iconic photo, from the Korean War, it was clicked back in the 1950s. A soldier of the 160th Infantry Regiment, who was leaving for the Korean War, was captured by former Los Angeles Times photographer Frank Q Brown. The soldier in the photograph is Robert Maye was kissing his wife Gloria, right before his train was departing taking him away for the Korean War.
