One of the trends that has taken over in the film industry is of remakes. Remakes and sequels are the rage and of late, a lot of South Indian films are being remade in Hindi. Telugu film Jersey is being remade in Hindi with Shahid Kapoor in the male lead role. On the other hand, reportedly Thalapathy Vijay's Theri right have also been sold to remake into a Bollywood film and apparently, Varun Dhawan might play the lead role. As earlier we exclusively revealed, Kartik Aaryan will be stepping into the shoes of Allu Arjun for the remake of the Telugu hit, Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo. Well, the strong relationship between the South Indian film industry and Bollywood has highly been successful over time. The exchange of remakes has worked in a good way for both the film industries. 

Kabir Singh's success, a remake of Vijay Deverakonda's Telugu film Arjun Reddy has only proved that Hindi audience enjoys watching the same story with a different twist. 2018 was a year which witnessed a dream run for out-of-the-box and original stories on the big screen. However, in the last one year, remakes have taken over immensely and it imposes questions regarding the potential of independent story ideas by filmmakers. Is Bollywood running out of original ideas and eyeing remakes of Southern hits? 

Remakes at times might not be able to do justice to the original work and it only proves one shouldn't tamper with original works. 

Also, did you know many hit Bollywood films like Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Swades, Simmba, Ok Jaanu among others are actually originated from Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam cinema?

Has Bollywood lost the meaning of 'Content Is The King' and are majorly looking forward to copying frame to frame? Just when Ayushmann Khurrana’s Badhaai Ho and Andhadhun made us believe that things are changing in Bollywood for better, the idea of serving 'the old wine into a new bottle' trend took over in the industry. Where is the creativity, original scripts? 

Be it songs of films, movie buffs by now used to the idea of remakes. What do you think? Let us know in the comment section below. 

Originality is a mantra that almost nobody these days believes in and are taking inspiration from the properties of others to bring things back to life.

In bollywood they dont have new ideas to think. Just to depend on South industries. Because they don't give chances for outsiders.

Of course Bollywood has no original brain. All they do is hijack ideas from Hollywood or Southern movies. Bollywood is the king of remakes. Bollywood reeks of colorism.

Not exactly, even now there are many filmmakers have thie own scripts in bollywood, I don't think so it's a South movie or hindi movie. Both are indian movie. But South Indian movies have been more authentic stories and advance technology compare to bollywood .it's not a thing now,happening long ago.

Yo, Bollywood has always been unoriginal. It's just before Hollywood didn't know they existed, so they flat-out stole the plots from them. Now most people speak English and the Internet exists. So they have turned to "licensed remakes" from the South and other Asian countries because America costs more to pay for a remake and everyone has seen the Hollywood version before a remake can be made.

Bollywood was always dependent on South films for stories. All major heroes in Bollywood rely on South movie scripts.
