'Saaho' copied from 'Largo Winch', claims French director

After the makers of Prabhas starrer Saaho were accused of copying a poster, French film director Jerome Salle has now made a similar remark against the makers of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho. He accused that Saaho is a rip off of his movie Largo Winch that was released in 2008.

Accusing the makers of 'Saaho' of having copied his work, he said, "Steal my work, at least do it properly."

"It seems this second "freemake" of Largo Winch is as bad as the first one. So please Telugu directors, if you steal my work, at least do it properly? And as my 'Indian career' tweet was of course ironic, I'm sorry but I'm not gonna be able to help (sic.)," Salle tweeted.

Last year, Jerome Salle had accused Pawan Kalyan's Agnyaathavaasi of plagiarizing Largo Winch.

The makers of 'Saaho' are yet to react to his allegations.

Made on a budget of Rs 350 crores reportedly, Saaho was one of the most anticipated movies of the year.

"Saaho" has collected over Rs 90 crore since it's release on August 30, according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh. The film, which has been directed by Sujeeth, also stars Shraddha Kapoor, Jackie Shroff and Neil Nitin Mukesh.
