Not just one but two upcoming Hindi films seem to have been 'inspired' from the West

Much has been said and done about Ritesh Batra’s award-winning film 'The Lunchbox'. However what many people may have not noticed the uncanny resemblance the film’s poster bears to a Hollywood film set for release around the same time.

The Irrfan-Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer will hit the marquee on September 20 while the Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis film will release a week later.
