By now, most Indians aren't even shocked to find out that a hit movie plot has been directly lifted from an international film. Plagiarism is rampant in the film and TV industries.
Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor-starrer Baaghi landed in legal trouble for its uncanny resemblance to the popular international action franchise — The Raid: Redemption and The Raid 2, without being an official remake.

The television soap titled Sasural Simar Ka is the latest to follow this dubious trend. The show lifted a teaser from the upcoming season of HBO's internationally popular fantasy drama Game of Thrones.
Titled, 'Hall of Faces' the trailer for Season Six showcases all the popular characters from the series in a chamber created of stone, with large pillars housing the faces (or heads) of the dead.

Check out the 'adaptation' below:
