'Daddy Cool' Not A Copy Of ‘Death At A Funeral’
Maruti Pictures, which produced Daddy Cool, has denied that the comedy movie is a copy of the "Death At A Funeral", which is a Hollywood movie released in 2007.
There had been rumours that Daddy Cool is not just inspired by the Hollywood movie, but is actually a complete copy.
"This is to clarify reports appearing in certain sections of the press about the upcoming Hindi film 'Daddy Cool' being a lift from the English film 'Death At A Funeral'," said a Maruti Pictures statement.
"'Daddy Cool' has duly obtained permission from the producers of the English film to produce and release the film across the world... Big Pictures is releasing the film only after ascertaining the facts," the statement said
"Daddy Cool" directed by K. Murli Mohan Rao stars Sunil Shetty, Aftab Shivdasani, Javed Jaffrey, Aarti Chhabria, Ashish Chowdhry, Tulip Joshi, Kim Sharma, Sophie Choudry, Rajpal Yadav, Chunky Pandey and Prem Chopra. The movie is scheduled to hit the silver screens on Aug 28.
