Someone in Bollywood has definitely watched “Gymkata”

A couple of days ago I mentioned an utterly horrible 1985 movie, “Gymkata”, and compared its execrable fight scenes to Bollywood’s over-the-top renditions of the same.  While looking for more such scenes, I came across this one from the 2014 movie “Heropanti“.  I’ve got to believe that the director of the latter had seen “Gymkata”, and drew inspiration (?) from it for this scene.

At least the hero got handed his backside at the end of this scene.  Usually, Bollywood heroes don’t. (And don’t the action and facial expressions remind you just a smidgen of Terence Hill and Bud Spencer‘s comedy movies?)
