Insiders say the upcoming Broken Horses has a start resemblance with his 1989 film that starred Nana Patekar, Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit. Our source says, “Parinda was also a gangster film, where of the two brothers, one takes to crime to be able to provide a good life to his sibling.
