They recently dropped the trailer for ‘A Star Is Born’ starring Bradley Cooper (who’s also directing the film) and Lady Gaga (who’s finally making her acting debut).
It’s a musical drama story about the world’s most successful musician and a struggling singer/songwriter. The musician is going through midlife crisis as he turns to alcohol. But he decides to help the budding musician to find her lost confidence.
Hmmmm, where have we seen this plot before? Oh that’s right, Bollywood. It’s too similar to Aashiqui 2 that came out in 2013. It starred Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles.
People on the internet also noticed the similarity in plot. They also pointed out how they lifted a famous scene from Aashiqui 2.
However, ‘A Star Is Born’ is NOT a ripoff of the Bollywood film.
Aashiqui 2 was inspired from the original ‘A Star Is Born (1937)’ in the first place, and Hollywood is just doing a remake of the film. Meanwhile, the movie is set to release on October 5.
