After sharing the poster of Ajay Devgn, the makers of upcoming film Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior shared new posters for the film, featuring Saif Ali Khan sitting on a throne. But while many praised how the actor looked, others said it seemed like an imitation of a character from Game of Thrones.
Khan, who plays the role of Uday Bhan in the film, is seen wearing black armour and a flowing cape in the poster, and sits gripping a sword. However, many said it bore an uncanny resemblance with characters from the recently-concluded and wildly popular HBO show.
While many commented on Instagram that it reminded them of Jon Snow, others took to Twitter to poke fun at the star, sharing pictures of Snow and Khan. Others slammed the makers of the film for what they alleged was a lack of originality.
