Earlier, it was reported that the Mehwish Hayat and Fahad Mustafa starrer was being screened in Mumbai. Now, with the trailer of Shahid Kapoor’s upcoming film released, Hayat feels that the Bollywood feature has taken inspiration from Actor in Law.
The ‘Actor in Law’ starlet took to her twitter and posted,
“Just saw the Batti Gul Meter Chalu trailer. Major deja vu. Reminds me a lot of my film Actor in Law. Great to see that our neighbours are now taking inspirations from our movies.”

Kapoor’s next venture titled Batti Gul Meter Chalu shows him in a similar avatar to that of Mustafa’s in Actor in Law. Much like how Mustafa plays a lawyer in the film, Kapoor does the same in Batti Gul Meter Chalu after escalating electricity bills kill his friend.
Twitterati remained divided on Hayat’s observation. Some agreed with the Load Wedding actor while others said that Akshay Kumar has done the same with Jolly LLB and Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
