We all know that Ekta Kapoor turns to her father's movies for inspiration for her stories. And

other creative heads are not that different. The latest serial to catch the Bollywood bug is 'Betiyaan', on Zee. And the source of inspiration is none other than the SRK hit, 'Baazigar'.

Here are a few similarities:

Karan comes to the Goradia House as their saviour – in the movie, Ajay comes to Madan Chopra's house as the son he never had, and impresses him.

Karan's mother does not recognize him because she is unwell – Ajay's mother is unwell in the movie.

Karan's mother begs the Goradias to clear her husband's name of all allegations, made by his employers, and she is insulted – Ajay's mother begs her husband's employers to clear his name, and is insulted.

Karan, as a child swears to avenge all the humiliation – Ajay swears revenge as a child, at his father's pyre.

However, to be fair to the writers of the serial, there are some differences between their script and that of 'Baazigar', and we made a note of those too: 

Karan's aim to seize the Goradia property – Ajay wants his father's property back.

Karan pretends to be in love with the main girl, Lakshmi – Ajay takes a longer route, pretending to be in love with the elder sister first.

Karan does not have any feelings for Lakshmi – Ajay falls for Priya.

Karan tortures Lakshmi – Ajay never hurt Priya.

And, we cannot overlook the fact that 'Baazigar' itself was a lift from a Hollywood movie. Life is like the movies. -(SAMPURN)
