Post a successful army officer in the blockbuster Uri: The Surgical Strike, Vicky Kaushal is set to be back on the big screens with Bhoot: Part One – The Haunted Ship. The makers have released the teaser moments ago, and it has been making a lot of noise. But what’s grabbing the eyeballs is the uncanny resemblance of its poster to Malayalam film, Jallikattu.

Amongst others, remains a poster which witnesses Vicky surrounded by multiple hands trying to choke him, while he can be seen screaming his lungs out. While it appeared impressive to many, some netizens quickly pointed out at how it was similar to the poster of the aforesaid Malayalam film.
