Kalki Koechlin’s upcoming web series Bhram has been earlier in talks due to the challenging role she will be playing for the same. However, the first poster release of the series has once again turned all eyes on it. As soon as the poster was unveiled, revelations started coming up that the poster bears an uncanny resemblance to the poster of the Australian gothic thriller, titled, The Nightingale.
With the poster of the web show Bhram in release, starring Kalki Koechlin, it has transformed into being the focus of controversy. The poster bears quite a similar resemblance to a poster of the Australian gothic thriller, The Nightingale.
As per an anonymous Instagram account’s post, Dietsabya called out the similarity on the same and shared a few snapshots of the similar posters from both the series- The Nightingale and Bhram.
Posing similarity, The Nightingale poster features the tense face of the film’s heroine Aisling Franciosi, as a blackbird flies past her, partially covering the face. Similarly, the Bhram poster also features Kalki’s face reflecting a similar expression, with a blackbird flying face and partially covering her face.
The account that marked the similarity, captioned it: “We spot a ‘cheel’ (eagle) but think it is a ‘kauwa’ (crow).”
