French Director Jérôme Salle has come out sharing his views on how Saaho is a rip-off of his film Largo Winch, and criticised makers for not even copying it properly! “I think I have a promising career in India,” he tweeted.
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. https://t.co/DWpQJ8Vyi0
