Filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar says Hollywood actor Jesse Eisenberg’s role of villain Lex Luthor in the superhero film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice looks similar to what Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan played in his classic films Darr and Baazigar.
Luthor is a sophisticated young businessman and hereditary CEO of LexCorp who is fixated on defeating his archenemy Superman.
According to Nambiar, the role seems quite similar to the grey shade characters that Shah Rukh played in Darr and Baazigar.
“Did anyone else think Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor was Shah Rukh from Darr and Baazigar,” Nambiar, best known for directing films like Shaitan, David and Wazir, posted on Twitter on Thursday.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice released in India on Friday.
