Sanjay Gupta Birthday: Did You Know Quentin Tarantino Loved The Director’s Kaante Which Was Inspired From Reservoir Dogs?

Sanjay Gupta is perhaps the one filmmaker who manages to get away with remakes after remakes or rather inspired movies. Almost all his movies are taken from one of the other world cinema titles. Most of them are based on South Korea  movies which are just brilliant. Be it Zinda or Jazbaa, he likes to base them on the content created from these movies. Then there are also Japanese movie inspirations as well. However, perhaps the only time an original maker commented on Gupta’s movie was when Quentin Tarantino was asked about Kaante. Everyone is aware that the multi-starrer heavily borrows from Reservoir Dogs and many others. What’s amusing is that Tarantino simply loved the recreation of his film in Hindi. Visfot: Riteish Deshmukh and Fardeen Khan Team Up for Sanjay Gupta’s Next, Film to Go on Floors by September End
