Social media calls the film rip-off of Money Heist
Pakistani film 50 crore hit a snag just after releasing its teaser on Sunday. The movie is being labelled a rip-off of popular Spanish show La Casa De Papel available on Netflix under the name Money Heist.
The teaser of 50 Crore showed the names of characters representing different cities of Pakistan, similar to Money Heist in which all the characters had named of famous cities. The character-reveal mugshots from Money Heist have also been copied by the cast of 50 Crore with slight variations.
The teaser created an uproar on social media with fans speculating that the film will revolve around a gang, led by a ‘Professor’ who plans a heist – or it could be a comical take on the Netflix show.
