What is Bollywood without inspiration, adaption, remakes, and, err, rip-offs? Well, incomplete, we suppose. Well, we have many instances to add t our claims; however, the most recent one is about Saif Ali Khan’s first look as Udaybhan from Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, which was unveiled yesterday. Needless to say, Saif looked both convincing and deadly as the antagonist, but it looks like his poster his been mighty inspired from that of Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow, read on to know why we say so.
Firstly, let’s talk about Saif Ali Khan’s poster. It sees the Nawab, in his armour, giving an intense gaze, as he stood with a sword in his hands. Not to miss his long hairs and the heavy beard. Well, well, well. This reminded us of something and as we stumbled upon this blessing called the internet, we found out that Kit Harrington AKA Jon Snow had pulled off the same pose long back. If you look closely at Jon Snow’s poster from Game of Thrones, it sees Kit in a similar posture, as he held the sword with both his hands and is giving a fierce stare.

In the past, Saif Ali Khan’s look as Naga Sadhu from Laal Kaptaan, too, was compared to that of Hollywood's Jack Sparrow. Opening up on the same, the actor, in an interview with Pinkvilla had said, “It upsets me when people say Jack Sparrow because it's really not. These are the elements that our culture has given cinema and this is something very seeped in India. The Naga Sadhu, the dreadlocks, bandana and his ash face, even the red jacket comes from the East India Company, so it's a character from our time.” (ALSO READ - 'From Striding Atop 2 Motorcycles, You Have Come A Long Way;' Shah Rukh Khan Congratulates Ajay Devgn On His 100th Film, Tanhaji)
