The trailer of Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Bachchhan Pandey’ released on Friday (February 18). While fans enjoyed watching Kumar and other actors like Kriti Sanon, Arshad Warsi, Pankaj Tripathi, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sanjay Mishra, Abhimanyu Singh, and Prateik Babbar in the trailer, some netizens pointed out how some of the scenes were blatantly copied from viral memes on social media.

In the trailer, when Kumar's character, Bachchhan Pandey, can be seen grabbing Tripathi's crotch while the latter is handing over the film's script has been straightaway copied from a popular viral meme on social media, the netizens have claimed. People also slammed the film's poster, which shows Kumar and Fernandez posing with a straw in their mouths and a coconut in their hands. This pose appears to have been inspired by the viral meme.

The video shows Bachchhan Pandey committing, often gruesome, acts of violence in order to cement his status as the "Godfather" of the criminal underworld. Bhaves, Pandey's mentor, is played by Tripathi. Pandey supposedly killed his love interest Sophie, played by Fernandez, according to the 'Bachchhan Pandey' trailer.

Pandey forges a sob story for Sanon's character and then bursts out laughing, revealing that he is a gangster because he wants to be. Sanon and Warsi's characters appear to be in mortal danger near the end of the trailer.

Screenplay writer Nischay Kuttanda has written ‘Bachchhan Pandey’, and Farhad Samji has directed the film. Sajid Nadiadwala is producing the film, which is set to hit theatres on March 18th.
