Andaz Apna Apna Inspired from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a remake of an older 1960s movie Bedtime Story. Andaz Apna Apna is definitely inspired from this movie but Andaz Apna Apna is far more hilarious. Apart from the basic plot of the two con men competing for one woman the characterization of the two leads is also similar. Also Michael Caine’s character loses to Steve’s character similar to Andaz Apna Apna and the heiress turns out not to be a heiress. There is a twist with respect to the female character though.

In Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Michael Caine and Steve Martin first meet on a train whereas in Andaz Apna Apna Aamir and Salman meet on a bus.

Here is the Andaz Apna Apna scene.
