Right from Hungama, Hulchul, Chup Chup Ke to Salman Khan’s Wanted, Ranveer Singh’s Simmba and Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh, we have classic examples of how Bollywood cashed in on south remakes. While we can question the originality of the films, but on the positive side, we should be happy that a regional content is getting acceptance through remakes in Bollywood.
