While the friendly neighbourhood journalists have already given the 'breaking scoop' about how Vinay Pathak's DASVIDANIYA is based on a Hollywood film, it is only speculative journalism and we will tell you exactly why.
A lot has been written about One More Thought Entertainment and Lemon Tea Productions DASVIDANIYA being inspired by Hollywood film, BUCKET LIST, we decided to hear a what the producer and lead actor, Vinay Pathak had to say on the matter.
Vinay has very categorically denied the charge saying that DASVIDANIYA is totally an original film, as it is based on Arshad Syed's screenplay. The film is certainly not based on Rob Reiner's BUCKET LIST, which is a buddy film about two friends whereas DASVIDANIYA is the story of a simple man with an extraordinary ambition. In fact the charge itself is hilarious as Arshad Syed (the script writer) wrote the script of DASVIDANIYA even before the Hollywood film released!
