South Korean film Parasite directed by Bong Joon-ho is the first non-English film ever to win the best picture award at the Oscars. The film also won the Best Director for Bong Joon-ho, Best Original Screenplay and also Best International Feature.
Bollywood actress Priyanka hailed the film for ‘shattering the glass ceiling.’
Meanwhile fans of Tamil cinema believe that ‘Parasite’ is inspired by actor Vijay’s film ‘Minsara Kanna’.
The story of ‘Parasite’ deals with a poor family taking fake names and latching on to a rich family like a parasite. Fans of Vijay feel the story of ‘Parasite’ is quite similar to ‘Minsara Kanna’. The story of the 1999 Tamil film ‘Minsara Kanna’ revolves around a wealthy boy (Vijay), who works as a soloist at the home of a businesswoman (Khushbu). Then he employs every member of his family at the businesswoman’s house, to get success in his love. The film, which was directed by KS Ravikumar, did okay at the box office.
