Is Govinda's next NAUGHTY @ 40 a straight lift of Steve Carell's Hollywood sex comedy THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN (2005)? That's the question making the rounds of the industry ever since the film was announced. Though the voices died down due to two year delay in the completion of the film, they have found momentum all over again with the promos currently on air.

"THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN was about a nerdy guy who had never got his 'share of action' despite hitting 40 years of age. Things change for him when he comes across a single mom. Similarly Govinda's character too has not been exposed to birds and bees and things get tough for him when he travels from London to India in hunt of a bride", informs an industry source.

With no official word coming from the makers, the speculations were already on rise that whether just like Govinda's other stuck film BANDA YEH BINDAAS HAI' (which is facing issues due to it's similarities with MY COUSIN VINNY), even NAUGHTY @ 40 was struggling due to fear of copyright infringement. However the film's director Jugmohan Mundhra (aka Jag) is quick to deny any such similarities whatsoever.

"There is not even one single scene which is common between NAUGHTY @ 40 and THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN", states Jag on the records; "It is just Govinda's character which has shades similar to that of Steve Carell. Just like Steve, even he hasn't 'done it'. But then in our film, even the leading lady (Yuvika Chaudhary) has zilch clue about birds and bees. It's the coming together of two such individuals that forms the crux of the film."

Sure Jag, we would want to check this out for ourselves when we see the film this Friday.
