‘Main Hoon Na’ and its connection with other films

Twitter user Hitarth Desai took to the micro-blogging platform and shared how Farah Khan gave a green signal to Masoom in ‘Main Hoon Na’ by having Naseeruddin Shah play the father who faces problems in his marriage because of his illegitimate son. “She also names his character ‘Shekhar’ after the director ‘Shekhar Kapoor’,” he wrote.


In connection to the 1979 movie, Golmaal, the director named both the lead characters of this movie after Amol Palekar’s characters from the old classic – Ram Prasad Sharma and Laxman Prasad Sharma.

The movie also had a spoof of the famous Gabbar scene with the SAME background music.

Brilliant,” wrote a Twitter user. Another person wrote, “Wow never noticed till today, thanks.” “Farah always does this, and she is always good. Om Shanti Om is filled with such pieces,” the third one wrote.
