I've not lifted scene from 'The Hangover': Sajid Khan

Apr 1, 2010 IANS

London, April 1 (IANS) Director Sajid Khan rubbishes reports that his upcoming film "Housefull" plagiarises a scene from Hollywood comedy "The Hangover", saying he is not dumb enough to rip off a scene from a recent hit film.

The scene in question involves a tiger. Ever since the promos of the Akshay Kumar-Lara Dutta starrer hit the screens, rumour mills started buzzing that Sajid has lifted the particular scene from "The Hangover".

"I could see these accusations coming. Yes, there is a tiger in the house, but I'm not dumb enough to rip off a scene from a recent hit film, tweak my original screenplay of 'Housefull' to forcibly incorporate it and then show it to the audience through promos so that rumour mongers can start debating about a lift from 'The Hangover'," Sajid said in a statement.

Produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and distributed by Eros International, the film also stars Deepika Padukone, Jiah Khan, Riteish Deshmukh and Arjun Rampal. Click the Movie button below for more info:
