Rensil dâ€™Silva who wrote one of the most original films ever Rang De Basanti is being accused of plagiarizing the screenplay of David Dhawanâ€™s Hook Ya Crook from the Adam Sandler film The Longest Yard. But Rensil, currently editing his Kareena-Saif directorial debut , denies any similarity between his film and the Peter Segal-directed 2005 prison drama.
â€œHook Ya Crook is a prison- break drama.So to that extent thereâ€™d be some similarity between Hook Ya Crook and any other prison-break drama. Having said that let me make it clear that my film isnâ€™t at all a copy of Longest Yard.â€
Rensil has been eager to visit Hyderabad to check out the prison set that David Dhawan has erected at the Ramuji Rao Studio.
â€œUnfortunately Iâ€™m so tied up with editing the canned footage of my film I canâ€™t take any time off,â€ ends Rensil regretfully.
