Karisma's pose in which she has put her right foot forward through a slit in her red gown is being widely compared with that of Jolie's whose pose on the Oscar red carpet in February in a black Versace high-slit gown became talk of the town.
When asked about the similarities between the two poses, Karisma said, "We shot this before the Oscars so it is not at all inspired from there. And in this poster I am walking and not posing like Angelina Jolie".
Director Vikram Bhatt, who has cast Karisma in the 3-D supernatural thriller slated for release on May 11, too slammed the comparison. "It is quite strange that the minute we have a slit in the gown we say its Angelina Jolie, nobody says Helen or the other actresses, so I think it is short sighted," Bhatt said.
'Dangerous Ishq' revolves around the efforts of supermodel Sanjana (Karisma Kapoor) to save her husband Rohan (Rajneish Duggal) who suddenly vanishes under mysterious circumstances.
