You know you have made it when Bollywood remakes your movie…

You may recall I was a producer on Stuart Hazeldines taught Brit thriller ‘Exam’ (watch to the trailer here…)

Well Bollywood has just done a genuine, all guns blazing 100% rip off. No phone call. No deal. No permission. Just rip off the movie. Even take credit for the writing!

I am not sure what Stuart and Gareth will do about this, but it is at best hilarious, at worst, sickening!

But hey, when Bollywood is remaking you, you know you are getting somewhere!

Onwards and upwards!
