Gerua: Copied or Inspired?

Gerua on loop since its release. Shah Rukh and Kajol together bring back those golden memories of ethereal romance.

Gerua, which means orange, is an uber melodious song! Arijit’s voice is mesmerizing and Antara Mitra has done a great job as well.

What’s also great about the song is the way it has been picturized. Absolutely Stunning!

But then this is where it all came crashing down… the locations featured in this song have been completely ripped off from Justin Bieber’s new song “I’ll Show you”?

Looks like you don’t believe us..

 

So here is the JB song, I’ll Show You:

And here is Gerua:

The major similarities include,

Airplane:

The aeroplane wreckage that SRK and Kajol dance on is at the Sólheimasandur’s black sandy beach. This plane crashed on Nov 24, 1973. It was a United States Navy airplane, C-47 Skytrain, also known as “Dakota”, which was also in service in the Indian Air Force. This place had to crash land on Sólheimasandur’s black sandy beach. Thankfully, the lucky crew survived this crash landing. The airplane’s remains are still standing at the crash site, waiting for film crews to come and shoot near it!

You can also see Justin Bieber’s skateboarding skills here in his video, so Sólheimasandur is quite the celebrity haunt now.

Waterfall:

The spectacular waterfall where you see SRK romancing Kajol, is at Skógafoss, Iceland. It’s a waterfall situated on the Skógá River in south Iceland where JB is just casually strolling in not half as glam as SRK Avatar in his video. The waterfall was also used in the filming of Thor: The Dark World, as well as in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Ice Lake:

The glacial lake where SRK sports his fancy ice blue shades while standing on a big block of ice is the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon. Amazing location! The lagoon is located near the Vatnajökull glacier and the temperature in the lagoon is a freezing 1 degree C. Want to take a dip here? Justin Beiber did…

Which of the two video do you think is looks prettier, the original (JB’s) or the inspired (SRK’s)?
