Harman Baweja was named a Hrithik Roshan look-a-like, when the first trailer of Love Story 2050 released about 2 months back. The similarities that followed after new trailers released were unbelievable.. But since the movie released last friday, the topic has been discussed widely and almost every reviewer / critic has mentioned it..
Before the release of Love Story 2050, Harman Baweja fumed over the comparisons with Hrithik Roshan. “My looks are not something that I have manufactured. It is what I was born with. There might be some (some??) similarity with Hrithik, but I completely disagree that we look the same or I am following his dancing or acting style.”
But Harman from whatever the world has seen of you in the movie, you not just look and dance like Hrithik, but every act of yours in the movie seemed to be heavily inspired by Hrithik Roshan. Whether its your dancing, dialogue delivery (although you failed miserably here) or your mannerisms.
Priyanka Chopra on the other hand said “I have worked with both of them and they have their own distinctive styles. Audiences will come to know once they see the film”
Priyanka, since the audience verdict is out now and they unanimously believe in exactly the opposite, we wonder what the distinct changes are, that you noticed? Ritesh, a student, goes as far as to say “The comparisons with Hrithik Roshan actually helped generate some hype around Harman Baweja. But Harman cant act! He seems to have intentionally copied Hrithik Roshan, and failed in doing so too. I couldn’t find anything unique or different in anything that he did in the movie.”
Funnily though, 2 days before the release of his Love Story, Harman says “I don’t want to talk about it any more. Just because my looks, my dance steps, my body language are same as that of Hrithik, it’s not right to compare me with him. Please, no more comparisons,”
Almost everything is same, but hey, please dont compare! Doesnt make much sense, Harman. The audience would rather watch the original well established superstar, dancing and performing than a duplicate, dont you think?
All said and done, it will be a Herculean task for Harman to get out of this hole, after the mega disaster in the form of his debut 50 crore Love Story 2050. When its time for his next release, the comparisons will arise once again. Hopefully we get to see something different the next time!
